For centuries, people in the West have been fascinated, enchanted and perplexed in equal measure by Japan and its culture. Following a crushing defeat in the Second World War, this small, proud country rose like a phoenix from the literal ashes to become a model of modernity and success, for decades Asia's premier economic giant. Yet it remains a nation hobbled by rigid gender roles, protectionist policies, and a defensive, inflexible corporate system that has helped bring about political and economic stagnation. The unique social cohesion that enabled Japan to cope with adversity and develop swiftly has also encouraged isolationism, given rise to an arrogant and inflexible bureaucracy, and prevented the country from addressing difficult issues. Its culture of hard work - in fact, overwork - is legendary but a declining population and restrictions on opportunity threaten the nation's future. Authors Keiko Hirata and Mark Warschauer have combined thoroughly researched deep analysis with engaging anecdotal material in this vivid and enlightening portrait of modern-day Japan, creating an honest and accessible critique that addresses issues crucial to the nation's future, from the economy and politics to immigration, education, and the increasing alienation of Japanese youth.
