I received this copy of a masters thesis from Ronnie Nyogetsu Seldin. He writes:

"Hi Everybody,

Here is a Master's Thesis just finished by Shinsuke Kitamori, for a Master's Degree at Doshisha Univercity in Kyoto.
It is entitled "Shakuhachi Culture Taking Root in the U.S.A.: The Construction of "Japanese" Authenticity and the Lifeblood of American Players"
I have his permission to share it with you.

It is very interesting to see these points of view taken and observed by a native Japanese.
Naturally, their points of reference, and the way they see us are sometimes different then how we see ourselves.
And moreover, he does make some interestingly 'different" points then I am used to seeing."

You can read the thesis here.
