Mirror Of Modernity

Invented Traditions Of Modern Japan

eBook - 1998
Rate this:
This collection of essays challenges the notion that Japan's present cultural identity is the simple legacy of its pre-modern and insular past. Building on the historical analysis of British traditions, The Invention of Tradition, 16 American and Japanese scholars examine age-old Japanese cultural practices, ranging from judo to labour management, and show these to be largely creations of the modern era.
