March 2, 2015

On Monday, January 26, a book selling corner was set up at the information space on the ground floor of Hitokuchizaka Building, Ichigaya Campus. The corner sells Hosei University Press’s 350 publications, including books popular among students and those related to Hosei University.

Hosei University Press was founded in 1948 as part of the events celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of Hosei University. As a comprehensive academic publisher, Hosei University Press has released an unparalleled variety of translations of books on philosophy, such as Sosho: Universitas. It also publishes serialized books such as Mizu to Machi no Monogatari (The Story of Water and Cities) written under the theme of rediscovery and restoration of urban and regional areas from the viewpoint of water.

“If you cannot find a particular book of Hosei University Press on the shelves here, you can order it at the counter,” says a spokesperson of Hosei University Press. “In addition to academic books we also sell books that appeal to the general public. Of these we recommend Hiroshima (written by John Hersey, published in 1949), the first-ever record of the damage done by an atomic bomb, to include in your reading list for 2015, the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. It was ranked 1st in the Top 100 Works of American Journalism in the 20th Century. We hope you stop by.”
