Diaspora without Homeland by Sonia Ryang

Book Description

More than one-half million people of Korean descent reside in Japan today - the largest ethnic minority in a country often assumed to be homogeneous. This timely, interdisciplinary volume blends original empirical research with the vibrant field of diaspora studies to understand the complicated history, identity, and status of the Korean minority in Japan. An international group of scholars explores commonalities and contradictions in the Korean diasporic experience, touching on such issues as citizenship and belonging, the personal and the political, and homeland and hostland.

Reading North Korea by Sonia Ryang Reading North Korea, Hardback (May 2012)

Sonia Ryang casts new light on the study of North Korean culture and society by reading literary texts as sources of ethnographic data. Ryang focuses critical attention on three central themes--love, war, and self--that reflect the nearly complete overlap of the personal, social, and political realms in North Korean society.

Japan and National Anthropology by Sonia Ryang Japan and National Anthropology, Hardback (May 2004)

Challenging the conventional view of Japanese studies in general and the Anglophone anthropological writings on Japan in particular, this text explores the process by which the postwar anthropology of Japan has come to be dominated by certain conceptual and methodological and exposes the extent to which this process has occluded our view of Japan.
