Japan and National Anthropology by Sonia Ryang

Book Description

Japan and National Anthropology: A Critique is an empirically rich and theoretically sophisticated study which challenges the conventional view of Japanese studies in general and the Anglophone anthropological writings on Japan in particular. Sonia Ryang 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.

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.

Diaspora without Homeland by Sonia Ryang Diaspora without Homeland, Paperback (September 2008)

More than one-half million people of Korean descent reside in Japan - the largest ethnic minority in a country often assumed to be homogeneous. This title 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.
