MEDIA REVIEWS
"In an America of lonely careerists and fragmented families, do we have something to learn from the tightly knit Japanese? Or does Japanese culture confine singular people in a straitjacket? Hamabata . . . essentially answers 'yes' to both questions in Crested Kimono, a book with case studies as emotionally charged as Kabuki drama."-Los Angeles Times Book Review
"This superb study of Japanese society portrays it as a balance between tradition and modernity, culture and person, and authority and emotion. Defying the bounds of traditional social science concepts that obliterate the individual, the book brings out 'real people' in situations where they will act and feel. A work of sociology that truly reads like a novel."-Virginia Quarterly Review
