18 editions published between 1979 and 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An entertaining and adventurous story of discovery, this historical rendering presents the Japanese experience of American culture based on the records and travelogues of Japanese envoys sent to the United States in 1860. Scores of samurai left copious records of the event, detailing the travelers' accounts of shopping at Tiffany's and some disturbing encounters with xenophobia. Illuminated are the startling beginnings of the attitudes and judgments that have helped form American and Japanese perceptions of each other ever since. This retrospective aims at a more precise understanding of the similarities and differences between Japanese and Westerners, providing a revealing critique of the roots of intolerance, and offering continued efforts at international and intercultural understanding
The cultures of globalization( Book )

20 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and Chinese and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pervasive force that evades easy analysis, globalization has come to represent the export and import of culture, the speed and intensity of which has increased to unprecedented levels in recent years. The Cultures of Globalization presents an international panel of intellectuals who consider the process of globalization as it concerns the transformation of the economic into the cultural and vice versa; the rise of consumer culture around the world; the production and cancellation of forms of subjectivity; and the challenges it presents to national identity, local culture, and traditional forms of everyday life. Discussing overlapping themes of transnational consequence, the contributors to this volume describe how the global character of technology, communication networks, consumer culture, intellectual discourse, the arts, and mass entertainment have all been affected by recent worldwide trends. Appropriate to such diversity of material, the authors approach their topics from a variety of theoretical perspectives, including those of linguistics, sociology, economics, anthropology, and the law. Essays examine such topics as free trade, capitalism, the North and South, Eurocentrism, language migration, art and cinema, social fragmentation, sovereignty and nationhood, higher education, environmental justice, wealth and poverty, transnational corporations, and global culture. Bridging the spheres of economic, political, and cultural inquiry, The Cultures of Globalization offers crucial insights into many of the most significant changes occurring in today?s world.

Off center : power and culture relations between Japan and the United States by Masao Miyoshi( Book )

14 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Miyoshi takes off from literature to range across culture, politics, and economics in his analysis of the Japanese and their reflections in the West: the fiction of Tanizaki, Mishima, Oe; trade negotiations; Japan bashing and America bashing; Emperor worship; Japanese feminist writing; the domination of transcribed conversation as a literary form in contemporary Japan. In his confrontation with cultural critics, Miyoshi does not spare "centrists" of either persuasion, nor those who refuse to recognize that "the literary and the economical, the cultural and the industrial, are inseparable."" "Yet contentious as this book can be, it ultimately holds out, by its example, hope for a criticism that can see beyond the boundaries of national cultures--without substituting a historically false "universal" culture--and that examines cultural convergences from a viewpoint that remains provocatively and fruitfully off center."--BOOK JACKET
Japan in the world by Masao Miyoshi( Book )

18 editions published between 1991 and 1999 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the end of World War II, Japan has determinately remained outside the current of world events and uninvolved in the processes determining global history and politics. In Japan and the World, distinguished scholars, novelists, and intellectuals articulate how Japan-despite unprecedented economic prowess in securing dominance in the world's market-is caught in a complex dependency with the United States. Drawing on critical and postmodernist theory, this timely volume situates this dependency in a broader historical context and assesses Japan's current dealings in international politics
Postmodernism and Japan by Masao Miyoshi( Book )

21 editions published between 1988 and 2003 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Postmodernism and Japan is a coherent yet diverse study of the dynamics of postmodernism, as described by Lyotard, Baudrillard, Deleuze, and Guatarri, from the often startling perspective of a society bent on transforming itself into the image of Western "enlightenment" wealth and power. This work provides a unique view of a society in transition and confronting, like its models in the West, the problems induced by the introduction of new forms of knowledge, modes of production, and social relationships
