Japan and Its Others
by John Clammer
xjapan others.TIF (110812 bytes)
This book explores Japan’s relationship with Asia and the world, examines contemporary Japanese thinking about Japan’s ‘others’ and how this impacts on local discourses about uniqueness, modernity, internal minorities and ‘postmodern’ conceptions of Japanese culture, religion and psychic makeup. Japan and Its Others attempts to take local knowledge seriously, pursue the ‘centrality of the emotions’ as a viable avenue for understanding Japanese society and enrich the scope of cultural studies and sociology of Japanese capitalism by presenting a comparative and non-western perspective.
