Overview

This provocative, insightful and highly accessible book offers a comprehensive examination of contemporary Japanese society. It challenges the dominant view that Japanese society is strongly characterised by 'groupism and homogeneity'. Covering a broad range of issues, such as the media, education, cultural diversity, power relations, gender and the family, from the perspective of an 'insider/outsider', Sugimoto's analysis is probing and comprehensive. This book is essential for students of Japan and for those seeking a general introduction.
