University of Michigan's Center for Japanese Studies presents:

Japanese Film Reprint Series
Edited by Abé Mark Nornes

http://www.umich.edu/~iinet/cjs/pubs/cjsfaculty/filmseries.html

The Center for Japanese Studies publications program has kicked off a 
new electronic publishing project. As part of this, UM's Japan faculty 
has been invited to create reprint series for their respective 
disciplines. The first of these is offered by Markus Nornes for 
Japanese film studies, and contains many books, journals, newsletters, 
and previously classified memoranda. The Proletarian Film Movements 
collection even contains precious records from the interwar censors and 
quicktimes of most of the extant Prokino films.

Features include:
        —Completely searchable text across all books (for English)
        —Download books as pds, or read in our browsing interface
