Japan spent the first half of the 20th century trying to impose its power on its neighbors by force. It then spent the second half of the 20th century trying to persuade everyone to forget about the first half. In the 25 years following the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, Japan traced a brilliant path to modernism. The West was sold on Japan - or sold to it. But the social and political truth of Japan has often been masked by its economic successes and the West's blind and obsequious Japanophiles. The truth is the dark days of the early 20th century still cast a shadow over Japanese society, a society that contains brutal injustices, distorted media images, entrenched prejudice and pervasive corruption. Fred Varcoe offers what he sees as a counterbalancing view to the sycophantically positive images presented in so many media portrayals of Japan. It is not a delicate view. It is, instead, a brutal look at elements of Japanese society told in an acerbic and personal style by a veteran Japan-based writer.

"(The novels) depict Japanese business as nasty and businessmen as villains. As the books sell in large numbers in Japan this is presumably how ordinary Japanese view the driving force of the world's second biggest economy". -- The Economist

The crises--and failures--of modernization in Japan, as seen up close by a resident expert Japan is a nation in crisis, and the crisis goes far beyond its well-known economic plight. In Dogs and Demons, Alex Kerr chronicles the crisis on a broad scale, from the failure of Japan's banks and pension funds to the decline of its once magnificent modern cinema. The book takes up for the first time in the Western press subjects such as the nation's endangered environment--its seashores lined with concrete, its roads leading to nowhere in the mountains. It describes Japan's "monument frenzy," the destruction of old cities such as Kyoto and construction of drab new cities, and the attendant collapse of the tourist industry. All these unhealthy developments are, Kerr argues, the devastating boomerang effect of an educational and bureaucratic system designed to produce manufactured goods--and little else. A mere upturn in economic growth will not quickly remedy these severe internal problems, which Kerr calls a "failure of modernism." He assails the foreign experts who, often dependent on Japanese government and business support, fail to address these issues. Meanwhile, what of the Japanese people themselves? Kerr, a resident of Japan for thirty-five years, writes of them with humor and passion, for "passion," he says, "is part of the story. Millions of Japanese feel as heartbroken at what is going on as I do. My Japanese friends tell me, 'Please write this--for us.'"

"With the passing of the "friendship generation" and the increase in (mostly negative) societal participation in the late 1980s, the governments of China and Japan have found it increasingly difficult to navigate between the constraints and possibilities in their relationship. Based on ten years' research in the United States, China, and Japan, this book argues that the relationship is politically now dispute-prone, cyclical, and downward-trending but manageable; militarily uncertain; economically integrating; psychologically closer in people-to-people contact yet more distant. The author develops measures of political interaction, trade, foreign direct investment, tourism, and student exchanges, and casts doubt on many prevailing assumptions about Sino-Japanese relations."--Publisher description.
