Product description

This is a synthesis of Japanese history, religion, culture and social organization. The book explores the Japanese historical legacy and its impact on the Japanese experience of modernity, eschewing the polemicism of structuralist or culturalist approaches in favour of a systematic, broadly comparative analysis. What emerges is a focus on the non-ideological character of Japanese civilization as well as its infinite capacity to recreate community through an ongoing past.
