At this point, this bibliography focuses on any material I can
find relating to the Deaf communities in Japan. Unfortunately, almost
all of them are in Japanese and I haven't updated this list since 1995....... I have translated some of the titles
when possible (my initials KN follow my translations), but the
translations should be treated as tentative and not reliable.
I have been turmoiled over how to translate "ro-a" in Japanese.
The dictionary translation (and literal translation) is "Deaf-mute"
but that now has negative connotation. I have translated modern usage
of it as "Deaf" but have kept historical references as "Deaf-mute"
to give best indication in English of the word in historical context.
