The scholarly analyses and literary portraits in this book elucidate the realities of Japan's postwar history. Drawing attention to the unresolved conflicts beneath the smooth surface of capitalism, they fill in awkward gaps in our understanding of contemporary Japan and underline the urgency of finding alternatives. This revised edition of The Other Japan (originally edited by Patricia Tsurumi) addresses in chronological fashion major social, environmental, and feminist issues and conflicts that have attended Japan's postwar economic miracle. Brief introductions to each chapter present these issues and conflicts as phenomena tightly linked to the processes of Japanese capitalism.
