Cultural nationalism in contemporary Japan : a sociological enquiry by Kosaku Yoshino( Book )

31 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The debate about Japan's 'uniqueness' is central to Japanese studies. This book examines the content and role of ideas of Japanese uniqueness, generally referred to as the nihonjinron, from comparative and theoretical perspectives. It also illuminates sociological theories of ethnicity and cultural nationalism through the use of Japan as a case study. Kosaku Yoshino, a Japanese scholar with a grounding in Western academic approaches to nationalism and Japanese sociology, brings these fields together. In this book he examines perceptions of Japanese uniqueness among intellectuals, educators and businessmen and provides a stimulating analysis of the ways in which ideas of Japanese uniqueness are 'produced' and 'consumed' in contemporary Japan. He finds that the ideas of the nihonjinron have been received more favourably by those in business than in education. He analyses the ways in which ideas of cultural distinctiveness are formulated in different national and historical contexts and uses the Japanese case to examine theories and assumptions about national identity and cultural nationalism. This extremely perceptive book combines sociology and Japanese studies within a broad comparative perspective to present an analysis of both the historical development of the Japanese sense of national identity and the ways in which it is changing. The book will appeal to students of Japanese studies, sociology, anthropology, politics and racial and ethnic studies
Consuming ethnicity and nationalism : Asian experiences( Book )

13 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is unique in applying a consumption approach to the study of ethnicity and nationalism, thereby challenging the usual 'top down' approach to nation-formation. Contributors from a variety of disciplines examine the on-going consumption of minority and national cultures by looking at different forms of consumption, including a national lottery, theme parks, museums, cross-cultural handbooks, popular song and audio-visual media. Chapters span diverse parts of Asia - from Korea, Japan and China to Malaysia and Sri Lanka - imparting to the volume a rare comparative quality. It should appeal to anyone interested in Asian Studies, as well as in the sociology and anthropology of culture, nationalism and globalization."--Jacket
