Grocery store-friendly Italian/Japanese/Chinese cookbooks?

I don't live near a whole foods (yet), and for the inevitable day I will move out of my parents' house, I realize if I want to eat the type of food I desire then I should get cookbooks. Not only do I like cooking, but I'm tired of eating TV-dinner lasagna and frozen Tai Pei pails which I thought might have been reminiscent to the 'real' food but I guess they are not after all. (not to be a food snob, since I don't know much about it anyways, or to exotify other cultures.)

I guess that a lot of 'ethnic' food might require food not found in grocery stores, which might make this a bit difficult for me... So like the title says, I am specifically looking for Italian, Japanese, and Chinese cookbooks that would make it easy for someone who only lives near chain grocery stores, to cook this food.
