Examining the popular heroes of Japanese films, comics, theatre and television, The Japanese Mirror looks at the dual status of women as both goddesses and she-devils, artificiality and transvestism, the role of the samurai and the gangster, and the modern father-figure as an object of ridicule. Both panoramic and intimate, A Japanese Mirror is a rich and surprising exploration of national identity.
