"Rethinking Modern Japan" is an accessible introduction to Japanese politics and society which combines both political and cultural studies approaches to understanding Japan. It explores the significant interaction between Japanese identity (cultural, national, regional, ethnic, gender-based) and the political (management, political economy, financial reform). Each chapter introduces the subject and gives an overview of the key literature in the area. The unique combination of cultural theory and conventional political analysis makes the book both contemporary and attractive to students.
