Hajime Kawakami
Birth: Oct. 20, 1879
Death: Jan. 30, 1946

Writer and economist. He developed an interest in Marxist economics and became an instructor of economics in Kyoto. He subsequently studied law in Europe and returned to Japan where he published a Marxist-leaning economics journal, "Studies of Social Problems." He later translated "Das Kapital" into Japanese and wrote many essays. He thereafter began to write novels and stories, as well as an autobiography, "Jijoden," between 1947 and 1948, and poems. His major work is "Novel About a Poor Man." He was arrested in 1933 for his membership in the Communist party and was sentenced to five years in prison before being freed in 1937. (bio by: Warrick L.
