Globalizing Japan : ethnography of the Japanese presence in Asia, Europe, and America by Harumi Befu( )

28 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Globalizing Japan explores the social and cultural dimensions of Japan's global presence. Japan's expansion and presence as an economic giant is witnessed on an everyday basis. Both consciously and unconsciously, we regularly come into contact with Japan's industrial and cultural globalization, from cameras and automobiles to judo, cuisine or animation. Japan's presence in the popular imagination is heavily influenced both by the country's historical past and its global present. [from publisher's advertisement]

Studies in the institutional history of early modern Japan by John Whitney Hall( )

9 editions published between 1968 and 1970 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study contains twenty-two essays by leading historians on the Tokugawa Period (1600-1868), eight of which have never before been published. The Tokugawa Period has long been seen as one of Eastern feudalism, awaiting the breakthrough that came with the Meiji enlightenment and the opening of Japan to the West. The general thrust of these papers is to show that in many institutional aspects Japan was far from backward before the Meiji Period, and that many of the preconditions of modernization were present and developing much earlier than has generally been believed. This collection will be particularly valuable to students and scholars of comparative and Japanese modernization. Originally published in 1970. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

Hegemony of homogeneity : an anthropological analysis of "Nihonjinron" by Harumi Befu( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In spite of rapid changes taking place in Japan, the dominant identity discourse of Japan - Nihonjinron - has maintained its hegemonic position in the ideological landscape. Japanese intellectuals have been producing and continue to produce a massive and ever increasing literature on the subject with no end in sight. In Hegemony of Homogeneity, Harumi Befu, a bilingual anthropologist who has dedicated the past 40 years to studying Japan, dissects, analyzes, and interprets this discourse by consulting hundreds of original Japanese sources. Befu argues that Nihonjinron is, among others, a civil religion for the Japanese and a creature responding to Japan's changing geo-political and geo-economic environment."--Jacket

Alutiiq : NA10( )

in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of 34 documents describes the Eskimo groups of southern Alaska. The Alutiiq, also referred to in the literature as the Pacific Eskimo(s), are located from the Alaska Peninsula east to Prince William Sound, including the Koniag of Kodiak Island and the Chugach of the Kenai Peninsula. The time period covered is from about 1774, at the time of the first Russian-Eskimo contacts, to approximately 2000. Most of these documents are about the Koniag of Kodiak Island, with some emphasis on the villages of Old Harbor, Karluk, and Kaguyak
Ainu : AB06( )

in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection about the Ainu consists of 8 documents, all in English, including three books which were translated from Japanese. The collection contains a variety of cultural and historical information from two widely contrasting time periods. The first covers the years 1877 to 1924 when most Ainu were living in their traditional homeland in southern Sakhalin. The second is from the 1960s-1970s after the Ainu almost disappeared as a distinct group following their relocation in the Hokkaidō Island by the Japanese government during World War II. The oldest materials in the collection were compiled by Batchelor, an English missionary who lived among the Ainu for fifty years in 1877-1924; Pilsudski, a German ethnologist who conducted fieldwork there from 1895-1905; and Munro, an English physician who lived in Japan in 1900-1942. These works provide firsthand accounts of pre-relocation Ainu culture and society, covering religion, ceremonials, mythology, folklore, economic activities, life cycles, and health issues. Three of the books in the collection were authored by Japanese scholars focusing on Japanese conquest and assimilation of the Ainu (Takakura), ecological and economic effects of relocation (Watanabe), and features of Ainu kinship system (Sugiura). The remaining two books are by Ohnuki-Tierney, an American anthropologist who, in 1965-1969, sought to retrospectively reconstruct the "Ainu way of life" through extensive ethnographic fieldwork among elderly informants in Sakhalin. Ohnuki-Tierney's works, which also provide extensive review of previous works on the Ainu in Sakhalin, Hokkaidō and the neighboring islands, are the most comprehensive sources. Ainu people who lived in Kurile and the other islands taken over by the USSR during World War II are not covered in the collection
