  • Miriam Kingsberg's forthcoming book, 'Moral Nation: Modern Japan and Narcotics in Global History' (University of California Press, 2013), uses the case of Japan to argue that narcotics served as the basis of an evolving attempt to define political legitimacy in empires and nations in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Her new research examines the history of anthropology in transwar Japan.
