520    My dissertation, "Ishii Juji, the Okayama Orphanage, and 
       the Chausubaru Settlement: A Vision of Child Relief 
       Through Communal Labor and a Sustainable Local Economy, 
       1887-1926," traces the transformation of radical political
       action following the Meiji Restoration of 1868, into an 
       ethical practice of child relief during the Meiji period. 
       Through the life work of Ishii Juji, a young Christian 
       convert who founded the Okayama Orphanage in 1887, I seek 
       to illustrate the historical shift of compassion and 
       empathy (aware) into motivating forces for social action, 
       social reform, and ultimately, plans for social renovation
       during the early industrial society. For the network of 
       social activists that came to surround Ishii during the 
       early 1890s, he and the Okayama Orphanage reflected the 
       possibilities of compassionate action---action that led 
       not only to Ishii's own utopian cooperative in Miyazaki, 
       but that also inspired the Christian socialism of Abe Isoo,
       the juvenile reform work of Tomeoka K osuke, and the 
       Marxist investigation of the "social problem" by Ohara 
       Magosaburo. Although the Okayama Orphanage is now placed 
       at the center of Japan's modern welfare system by 
       historians, during the last two decades of the Meiji 
       period, Ishii Juji rejected the influence of the state and
       moved the institution and his activism to the peripheries 
       of the nation, where he sought to construct a utopian 
       model of the ideal industrial society---a model in which 
       the profits reaped for future generations (i.e., youths 
       and children) would be social, cultural, and religious, 
       rather than those of monetary gain and military might
