It presents a synthesis of recent debates by juxtaposing competing views about the role and direction of science, technology and medical care in Japan.

Asian masculinities : the meaning and practice of manhood in China and Japan( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years western men have vociferously attempted to reorient themselves as sensitive and new age in a plethora of academic and popular works about men and masculinity. Far less has been heard about Asian men and masculinities. By providing a multi-disciplinary discussion of Chinese and Japanese masculinities, this book shows how East Asian masculinities are being formed and transformed as Asia is increasingly globalized. The gender roles performed by Chinese and Japanese men are examined not just as they are lived in Asia, but also in the West. The masculinities that emerge show how these men change as the world changes around them, highlighting similar and differing practices men from these two major Asian cultures are adopting as they attempt to optimize their positions. This book enhances current understandings of East Asian identities and cultures as well as Western conceptions of gender and sexuality. Insights and methodologies from many backgrounds inform the book and topics discussed are equally varied.; While basic issues such as masculine ideals in China and Japan are examined, the book also addresses issues including homosexuality, women's perceptions of men, the role of sport and food and Asian men in the Chinese diaspora
Building a modern Japan : science, technology, and medicine in the Meiji era and beyond( Book )

14 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1853-54, Commodore Matthew C. Perry visited Japan bearing gifts, but his greatest legacy was the ideas that were ushered into Japan in subsequent decades. We know that Perry's visits to Japan heralded a period of much greater exchange with the West, but what was the nature of those interactions? The contributors to this book explore this question as well as the role of the Japanese state in shaping both scientific and business relations at that time."--Jacket

East Asia beyond the history wars : confronting the ghosts of violence by Tessa Morris-Suzuki( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

East Asia is now the world's economic powerhouse, but ghosts of history continue to trouble relations between the key countries of the region, particularly between Japan, China and the two Koreas. Unhappy legacies of Japan's military expansion in pre-war Asia prompt on-going calls for apologies, while conflicts over ownership of cultural heritage cause friction between China and Korea, and no peace treaty has ever been signed to conclude the Korean War. For over a decade, the region's governments and non-government groups have sought to confront the ghosts of the past by developing p
