New book release: The Routledge Handbook of Japanese Culture and Society, edited by Victoria Lyon Bestor and Theodore C. Bestor, with Akiko Yamagata.
The book is intended to be a general reference book for non-specialists, college students, and others seeking succinct overviews of various realms of contemporary Japan, in line with the general format of Routledge Handbooks for other parts of the world.
The book is currently available in hardback, but Routledge plans to publish an electronic version shortly, and may at that time make individual chapters available on-line for classroom use.
Contributors include Victoria Lyon Bestor, Theodore C. Bestor, Ian Condry, Peter Duus, Koichi Iwabuchi, William Kelly, Susan Napier, Akiko Yamagata, and more.
