It contrasts the experiences of foreign children with those of Japanese children and sets out the extensive difficulties foreign children encounter in becoming fully accepted by and integrated into Japanese society. The book concludes by discussing the nature of citizenship in Japan and the importance of education, including early education, in shaping Japanese citizenship.

This book presents an ethnographic investigation of intimate and reproductive behaviour in current Japanese society, grounded in the viewpoints of a group of Japanese mothers. It adopts a new approach in studying the decreasing fertility rates which are contributing to the ageing population in modern Japan. Based on the accounts of 57 married Japanese women, it employs symbolic interactionism as a framework to examine the various factors affecting decision-making on childbirth. The influence of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs), abortion and contraception in the daily interactions and experiences of the mothers are analysed to offer a new perspective on the Japanese demographic conundrum. With strong contextual information as the foundation, the book contributes fresh insight into how Japanese women perceive the idea of childbirth in a modernized society, and also assists our understanding of the factors causing Japan’s ageing population. Further, it places the mothers’ experiences within current global debates to highlight the salience of the Japanese case. As the first book to provide an in-depth examination of the social process underpinning the decision to become a mother in Japan, it will appeal to students and scholars of Japanese culture and society, Gender Studies, and Sociology.

This book fills an existing gap within the practice of global citizenship education by offering Asian perspectives. In this book, Soka or value-creating education developed by the Japanese educators, Tsunesaburo Makiguchi (1871-1944) and Daisaku Ikeda (b. 1928) is compared to the ideas of the Indian political leader Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948). This study of their respective thoughts and movements has a significant bearing on the three domains of learning within the global citizenship education conceptual dimensions of UNESCO – the cognitive, socio-emotional, and behavioral. This book deftly combines theoretical discussions with themes and suggestions for practice and future research.

Die vielseitigen Arbeitsgebiete und Fragestellungen des modernen kulturwissenschaftlichen Japan-Diskurses stehen auch in diesem zweiten Band im Mittelpunkt. Vier der insgesamt sieben Beitrage beschaftigen sich mit der japanischen Gegenwartskultur: der Inszenierung japanischchinesischer Begegnungen in Film und Fernsehen; den kulturbedingten Lesarten des Mediums Film anhand von Miikes Werk "Audition"; den Moglichkeiten und Grenzen des Manga als historisch "realistisches" Medium am Fall von Nakazawa Keijis "Barfuss durch Hiroshima"; dem Erfolgsrezept der Sangerin Nakajima Miyuki in Japans schnelllebigem Showbusiness. Weitere zwei Beitrage widmen sich den Aspekten der Kommerzialisierung in Japans Vormoderne: der damals uberaus erfolgreichen, heute jedoch wissenschaftlich geringgeschatzten erzahlenden Prosa Ejima Kisekis zu Beginn des 18. Jahrhunderts; den Vermarktungsstrategien fur Vielfarbendrucke im 19. Jahrhundert. Der siebte Beitrag beleuchtet abschliessend die Einflussnahme der japanischen Kolonialregierung auf die heutige Form des popularen taiwanischen Puppentheaters Budaixi. Die Lekture der Texte verdeutlicht die immer noch nicht uberwundene Exotisierung Japans im Zeitalter der Globalisierung, die Bedeutung von Film und Schlager als Indikatoren fur Japans wechselnde gesellschaftliche Befi ndlichkeiten und die aus westlichen Denkmustern resultierende, verzerrte Rezeption von Phanomenen der vormodernen Massen- und Medienkultur Japans.
