An exploration into every aspect of Japanese society, from the most public to the most intimate.

"A well-informed analysis of Japanese culture and society."--"The Independent"

"A disarming, engaging, and provocative book."--Andrew Barshay, University of California, Berkeley

This entertaining book takes us on an exploration into Japanese society as Alan Macfarlane uncovers the multifaceted nature of a country and people who are even more extraordinary than they seem. Clear-sighted, persistent, affectionate, unsentimental, and honest--Macfarlane shows us Japan as it has never been seen before.

Alan Macfarlane is a professor of anthropology at Cambridge University. He has often visited and taught in Japan and is the author of "The Glass Bathyscaphe" and "Letters to Lily."
