Daniel Botsman is a professor of history at Yale University. He teaches courses on the history of Japan from 1500 to the present. His publications include a translation of the memoirs of a prominent post-war foreign minister, Okita Saburo: A Life In Economic Diplomacy, and a study of the history of punishment from the 16th to the 20th centuries, Punishment and Power in the Making of Modern Japan.
