DeutschEvans hat mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail eine hervorragende Arbeit geleistet Anstatt einfach nur eine bersetzung zu schreiben liefert Sie nebenher Romaji lateinische Umschrift Hiragana Lesung der Kanji und Kanji zu den einzelnen Gebeten Egal ob man nun Japanisch kann oder nicht dies erm glicht es jedem mit den Texten klarzukommenDas Vorwort und der Anhang liefern tiefere Informationen zu Shinto Norito im Allgemeinen und verwandten Themen zB Schrein Etikette alles sehr lehrreich und interessantWarum aber nur 4 Sterne Aus zwei Gr ndenErstens Es w re nett gewesen statt die Gebete einfach aufzulisten zu jedem eine kleine Einf hrungErkl rung zu schreiben In welchem Zusammenhang werden diese Gebete genutzt Das ergibt sich zwar meist aus den Titeln aber es w rde doch helfen Oder vielleicht ein paar Erkl rungen zum Inhaltden Zusammenh ngen Denn Norito ist nichts das Otto Normal Japaner t glich benutzt die meisten Japaner verstehen nicht mal den Inhalt da die Sprache sehr archaisch istZweitens Zugegeben das Buch ist von 2001 aber man sollte doch trotzdem daf r sorgen das Internet Links lange funktionierenEs muss noch folgendes erw hnt werden Dies ist ein Print on Demand Buch gedruckt von Distribution in Leipzig Ich habe bei anderen PODs viel schlechtes ber die Druckualit t gelesen kann das in diesem Fall aber NICHT best tigen Der Text ist sauber die Seiten gerade der Einband Bild und Material gut und im Text enthaltene Bilder sind gut und deutlich zu erkennen Zur Stabilit t der Bindung kann ich leider nichts sagen da ich das Buch gerade erst gekauft habe sie macht aber einen vern nftigen EindruckEnglishEvans paid a lot of attention detail in creating this outstanding work Instead of just translating it she provides Romaji Latin transliteration Hiragana how to read the Kanji and the Kanji of each prayer So whether one can read Japanese or not this enables everyone to properly use the textThe preface and Appendix provide information on Shinto Norito in general and related topics eg shrine etiuette all in all very instructive and interestingSo why only 4 stars For two reasonsFirst It would have been nice to give a little introductionexplanation for each prayer instead of just listing them one after the other When are these prayers used Although this usually can be guessed from the title it still would help Or perhaps she could have given an explanation about the contentcontext because Norito isn t something the average Japanese person uses on a daily basis In fact most Japanese wouldn t actually understand the content because the language is very archaicSecond Although this book was written in 2001 the author really should take care that Internet links properly work even after a certain time has passedOne last thing that need to be said This is about the book available in Germany I don t know what happens when you buy this in the US or UK This is a Print on Demand book printed by Distribution in LeipzigGermany I have read a lot of bad things about other PODs but in this case I CANNOT confirm them The text is clean pages properly aligned binding image and material good and the images found in the text are good and clearly recognizable I can t give any details about the stability of the binding since I just bought the book but it does seem to be good
