Description - Japan and National Anthropology by Sonia Ryang
Japan and National Anthropology is an empirically rich and theoretically sophisticated study which challenges the conventional view of Japanese studies in general and 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 issues and exposes the extent to which this process has occluded our view of Japan. This book will be welcomed by all students of Japanese anthropology and Japanese history.
