Dimensions of Japanese Society : Gender, Margins and Mainstream, Hardback Book

Dimensions of Japanese Society : Gender, Margins and Mainstream Hardback


Japan remains one of the most intriguing yet least understood nations.

In a much needed, balanced and comprehensive analysis, among other remarkable revelations, this book presents for the first time a vital key to understanding the organisation of Japan's society and the behaviour of its people.

The Japanese are not driven by a universal morality based on Good and Evil, but by broad aesthetic concepts based on Pure and Impure.

What they include as 'impure' will surprise many readers.
