Summary
  • "Men and Masculinities in Contemporary Japan provides the first comprehensive account of the changing role of men and the construction of masculinity in contemporary Japan. It moves beyond the stereotype of the white-collar salaryman to explore the diversity of identities and experiences found among Japanese men, including those versions of masculinity that are marginalized and subversive. By examining this diversity, the book also helps to bring the notion of 'masculinity' itself into question." "This edited collection includes discussions about transgendering men, working-class men, body aesthetics, transnational marriages, domestic violence, AIDS, representations of homosexuality, fatherhood and struggles for a masculine meaning in life beyond work within Japan."
  • "This is a significant contribution to our understanding of contemporary Japanese society and identity. It will be of interest to students and researchers of anthropology, sociology and gender studies as well as Japanese studies."--BOOK JACKET
