Abstract:

The electronic tribe focuses on the contrasts between contemporary life of factory workers and the centuries-old religious and rural traditions they still practice. Examines the influence of China over the centuries, the importance of loyalty to family and company, and the roles of Shinto and Buddhism in Japanese life. Visits rural rice farms and workers in a Honda factory.

The sword and the Chrysanthemum examines the traditions of the Samurai warrior, who combined an appreciation for high culture with aggression and fighting. Explores how the influence of Samurai culture can be seen in many aspects of contemporary Japanese culture, such as: rock gardens, tea ceremonies, the violence in comic books and television programs, and the relative safety of Japanese cities.

The legacy of the Shoguns explores the continuing influence of the 17th century Shogun philosophy of hard work, discipline, hierarchy, and seniority. This program posits that the Shogun philosophy fueled the rapid acceleration of industry and technology in 20th century Japan.

A proper place in the world explores the role Japan played in world history during the 20th century. Examines why Japan went to such lengths to win respect and fight encroaching imperialism during World War II. Discusses the Japanese desire for economic growth, Western influences that have blended with Japanese traditions, and the role of women in society and their economic power.
