Tokyo Vice: An Education on The Way of the Journalist
An evening with Jake Adelstein, investigative journalist and author of Tokyo Vice
Thursday, April 29 7-9 p.m
(Murkland Hall G115)
Jake Adelstein has experienced the dark side of Tokyo’s urban culture and emerged to tell the tale in Tokyo Vice: An American Reporter on the Police Beat in Japan. Starting out in Japan as an American college kid in search of enlightenment, Jake got himself hired as a reporter for the Yomiuri Shimbun, Japan’s largest newspaper and worked there for twelve years, becoming the only foreigner ever to gain admittance to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Press Club. While learning how to cultivate his relationships with both the police and organized crime in pursuit of the scoops and leads, Adelstein dove deep into a part of Japan most foreigners, and even most Japanese, never see. He recounts many of these adventures in his book and will share more with his audience here on the UNH campus.
This event is brought to the UNH community by the Deans Office of the College of Liberal Arts, The English Department and The Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures.
Hopefully Jake will see a few of our readers there!
