      Hi Michiyo,
      Thanks for taking on this task; we need a complete list of Fukuoka's writings, especially since none of the 10 largest research libraries in North America (Harvard, Yale, Berkeley, Stanford, Toronto, Michigan, UCLA, Illinois, U. Texas at Austin, Cornell) has all of his books. Many of these have only one or two of his books, and with their entire resources combined, at least three of his books are missing. That means if somebody doesn't draw up a comprehensive list now, in a few years it will be all but impossible to find most of what Fukuoka wrote. The University of Tokyo library doesn't seem to have any of Fukuoka's books (though their electronic index may not go back before 1986.). Their website (Japanese and English) is http://www.lib.u-tokyo.ac.jp/
      The French translation was published by (La) Maisnie/Tredaniel, a company noted for its Asian collection in aikido, kendo, Tibetan medicine, and feng-shui.
      The accepted English title for Fukuoka's latest (self-published or self-funded) book is, I believe, "One Straw Revolution: Traveling with Seedballs." This may have been funded by a Rockefeller grant for $10,000 to design a "textbook" on making seedballs or clayballs. See archived Fukuoka_farming message 1286 from Elizabeth Denk or Rockefeller grant site http://www.rbf.org/ramongrant98.html
