[America's Japan is a compelling read for anyone interested in cross/inter/trans cultural performance theory and practice." --Asian Theatre Journal-- (05/18/2016) "Though ostensibly about Japanese performing arts, Thornbury's book makes a statement about North America's myopic view of the world and how influential arts presenters in New York City have fostered it." -Choice--C. Lanki"Choice" (12/04/2013) "A love letter to Japanese traditional and contemporary performing arts in New York and a detailed scholarly history of the reception and understanding of those arts and that history by Americans from the turn of the last century to the present moment.

Thornbury proves that through programming and marketing decisions, American presenters have had much influence on a North American perception that labels 'real' Japanese culture as exotic, mysterious, and very much 'other.'" --Choice
