Not surprisingly, the centenary of his death in 2004 presented an occasion for renewed debate and discussion by both sides of the divide.

This volume, edited by one of Hearns leading contemporary apologists, in which he is also a significant contributor, presents twenty-two diverse essays drawn from over seventy papers delivered at conferences held in four cities in Japan in 2004, as well as at other international conferences that took place earlier.

The contributors are Joan Blythe, John Clubbe, Susan Fisher, Ted Goosen, George Hughes, Yoko Makino, Peter McIvor, Hitobe Nabae, Cody Poulton and Masaru Toda. Their contributions range from Sukehiro Hirakawas A Reappraisal to Joan Blythes Enduring Value of Lafcadio Hearns Tokyo Lectures.
