Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Now fully revised and updated, this widely-praised introductory text explores Japan through the prism of three alternative perspectives: mainstream, revisionist, and culturalist. Beginning with the noting of Japan as a "contested territory" the book focuses on debates about the real nature of Japan's successes and shortcomings.
