Overview

A Century of Popular Culture in Japan by Douglas Slaymaker

Slaymaker (Japan studies, U. of Kentucky) is joined by several other American scholars of Japanese culture to explore the ways that popular culture has its context within history, and how in these globalized times it is difficult to determine exactly whose culture it is. Essays examine how World War II concepts have influenced modern Japanese culture, how Japanese popular culture is succeeding in the US, and how ancient Japanese myth and history affect one's understanding of the modern film .
