An Introduction to Japanese Society by Yoshio Sugimoto

Essential reading for students of Japanese society, An Introduction to Japanese Society now enters its third edition. Here, internationally renowned scholar, Yoshio Sugimoto, writes a sophisticated, yet highly readable and lucid text, using both English and Japanese sources to update and expand upon his original narrative. The book challenges the traditional notion that Japan comprises a uniform culture, and draws attention to its subcultural diversity and class competition. Covering all aspects of Japanese society, it includes chapters on class, geographical and generational variation, work, education, gender, minorities, popular culture and the establishment. This new edition features sections on: Japans cultural capitalism; the decline of the conventional Japanese management model; the rise of the socially divided society thesis; changes of government; the spread of manga, animation and Japans popular culture overseas; and the expansion of civil society in Japan.
