With their delicate foliage, seasonal color changes, and intricate pattern of branching, Japanese maples are among the most popular and suitable plants for bonsai design. In this long-awaited book, internationally renowned expert Peter Adams discusses both the specific horticultural needs of Japanese maples as bonsai subjects and illustrates proven techniques for creating and maintaining beautiful specimens. Although aimed at an audience that has some familiarity with bonsai techniques, the book deliberately shows a mix of bonsai at different stages in their training, so that less experienced enthusiasts can gain new ideas and inspiration from trees that are "works in progress." Much more than a mere "how-to" book, Bonsai with Japanese Maples is a forthright attempt to look at bonsai as art objects and to critique and assess them from an artist's perspective.

When a teenage runaway-turned-prostitute is found murdered in the dark alleys of Tokyo’s raunchiest red-light district, no one seems to care...except The Snake, a grizzled, whiskeyswilling yakuza. It’s an affront to his authority: No one gets away with murder on his turf. Determined to render justice and restore his reputation, The Snake juggles his investigation amidst an impending gang war and an effort to get the Governor of Tokyo elected Prime Minister. The victim’s former best friend holds the key to the mystery, and a romance blossoms while they chase the killer. As the couple wades through their familiar milieu of ruthless gangsters, elite hostesses, and corrupt politicians, they reveal a cover-up that threatens the highest levels of power. Ancient yakuza codes of honor give way to betrayal as The Snake is torn between lifetime loyalties and justice. The seamy back alleys of Tokyo come to life in this thriller folded as tightly as origami. These Tokyo lives aren’t the ones you read about in travel guides—they’re the ones that prey on the flaws and indiscretions of a nation.
