Introduction to Japanese Society

This edition also features the latest research into Japanese society, updated statistical data and coverage of recent events including the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, and the change in government. Written in a clear and engaging style, An Introduction to Japanese Society provides an insight into all aspects of a diverse and ever-evolving contemporary Japan.

'Many introductory textbooks on Japan are spinelessly benign with pastiches of essentialist snapshots, but Sugimoto accepts the challenge of representing complexity. This welcome fourth edition, updated from the 1997 original ... is evidence of how much his critical perspective has been cherished by generations of instructors and scholars.' L.
