The fifteen multidisciplinary essays that comprise this book examine the social, cultural, and political underpinnings of Japan’s postwar and post-industrial trajectories. Unique for their integration of gender, class and ethnicity within four thematic narrative frames, the essays of this volume explore topics that range from the last twenty years of the Japanese state’s efforts to formulate industrial policy and foster financial reform to the unconnected efforts of a Japanese broadcaster and an American airline to construct personal and national identification around nostalgic notions of a reified ‘self’.
