With the ever growing contact between Japan and the rest of the world comes an increasingly important need to understand a society that is fascinating but still often confusing to the outsider. In this brand new fourth edition of Understanding Japanese Society Joy Hendry brings the reader up to date both with recent changes as Japan hit the world headlines under the triple 2011 disasters, and with underlying continuities in ways of thinking that have matured over a long history of dealing with foreign influences and an unpredictable environment.

This welcome new edition of Hendry’s bestselling introductory textbook provides a clear, accessible and readable introduction to Japanese society which does not require any previous knowledge of the country. Fully updated, revised and expanded, the fourth edition contains new material on:

     

  • the effects of the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disasters of 2011
  •  

     

  • a renewed interest in politics and popular participation
  •  

     

  • increased frequency of local spiritual support as unemployment continues to grow, and marriage gets later and later
  •  

     

  • the effects of a dramatic drop in the birth rate on Japan’s education system
  •  

     

  • the continuing global success of Japanese animation, manga and computer games despite a turn away from international travel
  •  

     

  • the cool new Ainu, the attraction of healing Okinawa, and changes among other Japanese minoritie
  •  

     

  • a new role for Japanese fathers in child-rearing
  •  

This book will be invaluable to all students studying Japan. It will also enlighten those travellers and business people wishing to gain an understanding of the Japanese people.

More than 120 articles are presented in a year-by-year structure, with each focusing on a crucial event—from the creation of a seminal work to the opening of a major exhibition—to tell the myriad stories of art from 1900 to the present. Key turning points and breakthroughs in modernism are explored, as are the antimodernist reactions that proposed alternative visions of art and the world. The book's flexible structure and extensive cross-referencing allow readers to follow the many developments in the art world, from the influence of surrealism to the emergence of minimalism. A four-part introduction outlines the methodologies governing the discipline of art history, and two roundtable discussions examine the questions raised by the past while looking ahead to the futur
