Yanagita Kunio and the Folklore Movement : The Search for Japan's National Character and Distinctiveness Hardback
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Folklore series
Yanagita Kunio almost singlehandedly initiated the serious study of folklore in Japan.
Even modern Japanese folklorists who may disagree with his approach or his methods must take his body of work as a point of departure for their own.
This book, first published in 1990, puts Yanagita's career within a historical framework and context, full of detail about Japanese political and literary trends which influenced or were influenced by the folklore scholarship of Yanagita.
