Christianity made in Japan : a study of indigenous movements by Mark Mullins( )

19 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 2,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For centuries the accommodation between Japan and Christianity has been an uneasy one. Compared with others of its Asian neighbors, the churches in Japan have never counted more than a small minority of believers more or less resigned to patterns of ritual and belief transplanted from the West. But there is another side to the story, one little known and rarely told: the rise of indigenous movements aimed at a Christianity that is at once made in Japan and faithful to the scriptures and apostolic tradition. Christianity Made in Japan draws on extensive field research to give an intriguing and sympathetic look behind the scenes and into the lives of the leaders and followers of several indigenous movements in Japan. Focusing on the "native" response rather than Western missionary efforts and intentions, it presents varieties of new interpretations of the Christian tradition. It gives voice to the unheard perceptions and views of many Japanese Christians, while raising questions vital to the self-understanding of Christianity as a truly "world religion."This ground-breaking study makes a largely unknown religious world accessible to outsiders for the first time. Students and scholars alike will find it a valuable addition to the literature on Japanese religions and society and on the development of Christianity outside the West. By offering an alternative approach to the study and understanding of Christianity as a world religion and the complicated process of cross-cultural diffusion, it represents a landmark that will define future research in the field
Religion and social crisis in Japan : understanding Japanese society through the Aum affair( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the time that Aum Shinrikyo emerged, most Japanese assumed that they lived in one of the most well-ordered and safest societies, a model that had much to offer the chaotic Western world. Japanese were also accustomed to reading about violence elsewhere - related to the gun culture in the United States or ethnic and religious conflict in various regions of the world - but rarely at home. This assumption was shaken on 20 March 1995 when the deadly nerve gas sarin was released on the Tokyo subway system. Since that incident, the 'Aum affair' has had widespread repercussions and shaken the Japanese psyche in a serious way." "This volume provides a window onto contemporary Japanese society by considering the various reactions and responses to this crisis precipitated by the deviant religious movement. The 'Aum affair' also highlights the dilemma of how to protect society from potentially dangerous religious groups while at the same time protecting the free practice of religion, a concern of all democratic societies."--Jacket
Religion and society in modern Japan : selected readings( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Designed for the undergraduate level classroom study, this anthology provides the students with interpretations and perspectives on the significance of religion in modern Japan. Emphasis is placed on the sociocultural expressions of religion in everyday life, rather than on religious texts or traditions. Readings have been selected under four categories to show the diverse forms of Japanese religiosity and the continuing role of religion in this modernized society. These are: Japanese religiosity; religion and the state; traditional religious institutions, decline and adaptation; new religious movements. A particular strength of this collection is the combination of current Japanese and Western scholarship. ' ... Highly recommended ... '"--Journal of Asian Studies

10 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in English and German and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Disasters and social crisis in contemporary Japan : political, religious, and sociocultural responses by Mark Mullins( )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Japan is still coming to terms with the “triple disaster” of 2011 – earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown. Only two decades ago, the country was similarly shaken by the “double disaster” of earthquake and sarin gas attack in 1995. What can we learn about Japan through the diverse responses to these two critical moments in postwar history when a “normal” sense of stability and existing social order was severely undermined? This edited collection brings together a multidisciplinary team of scholars to engage this question and explore the wide-ranging and diverse responses by national and local governments, political leaders, citizen activists concerned mothers, religious organizations, literary figures, and public intellectuals." --
Yasukuni fundamentalism : Japanese religions and the politics of restoration by Mark Mullins( )

8 editions published between 2021 and 2022 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recent decades have seen a rise in religious nationalism and fundamentalism around the world. This book focuses attention on a Japanese expression of fundamentalism and neonationalism based on Shinto and symbolically centered on Yasukuni Shrine. The Shinto tradition is often seen as a very tolerant expression of religion that allows for diverse forms of belief and practice, but when closely tied to the interests of the state or political power it can be used to legitimize coercion in public life and institutions. This became particularly apparent in wartime Japan and has reappeared in the postwar period in what has been identified as expression of "Yasukuni fundamentalism," a movement that seeks to revive and restore the social order and values expressed in the Emperor-centered form of Shinto that existed before the end of the Second World War. Yasukuni fundamentalists not only want to recover and revitalize the tradition disestablished by the Allied Occupation of Japan, but also seek to impose it on the larger public through the re-nationalization of Yasukuni Shrine, revision of the postwar Constitution, and reform of the public school system. This book examines the growth of this neonationalist movement in post-disaster Japan, the social conflict generated by their political agenda, and the various forms of opposition by religious leaders and groups, as well as public intellectuals, to the reappearance of coercion the public sphere"

Yasukuni Fundamentalism : Japanese Religions and the Politics of Restoration by Mark Mullins( )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although religious fundamentalism is often thought to be confined to monotheistic "religions of the book," this study examines the emergence of a fundamentalism rooted in the Shinto tradition and considers its role in shaping postwar Japanese nationalism and politics. Over the past half-century, the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and the National Association of Shrines (NAS) have been engaged in collaborative efforts to "recover" or "restore" what was destroyed by the process of imperialist secularization during the Allied Occupation of Japan.Since the disaster years of 1995 and 2011, LDP Diet members and prime ministers have increased their support for a political agenda that aims to revive patriotic education, renationalize Yasukuni Shrine, and revise the constitution. The contested nature of this agenda is evident in the critical responses of religious leaders and public intellectuals, and in their efforts to preserve the postwar gains in democratic institutions and prevent the erosion of individual rights. This timely treatment critically engages the contemporary debates surrounding secularization in light of postwar developments in Japanese religions and sheds new light on the role religion continues to play in the public sphere

Belief and practice in imperial Japan and Colonial Korea( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bringing together the work of leading scholars of religion in imperial Japan and colonial Korea, this collection addresses the complex ways in which religion served as a site of contestation and negotiation among different groups, including the Korean Choson court, the Japanese colonial government, representatives of different religions, and Korean and Japanese societies. It considers the complex religious landscape as well as the intersection of historical and political contexts that shaped the religious beliefs and practices of imperial and colonial subjects, offering a constructive contribution to contemporary conflicts that are rooted in a contested understanding of a complex and painful past and the unresolved history of Japan's colonial and imperial presence in Asia. Religion is a critical aspect of the current controversies and their historical contexts. Examining the complex and diverse ways that the state, and Japanese and colonial subjects negotiated religious policies, practices, and ministries in an attempt to delineate these "imperial relationships", this cutting edge text sheds considerable light on the precedents to current sources of tension
Public auto insurance : a mortality warning for motorists by Mark Mullins( Book )

Auto premium inflation : how StatsCan rocked the Bank of Canada by Mark Mullins( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Statistics Canada (StatsCan) appears to have mismeasured auto insurance premiums from March 1996 to March 2002, if not generally outside that time range. This six-year period was marked by long periods where the statistical agency's price indices of provincial auto insurance premiums were unchanged, suggesting that the agency had no primary survey data. Tables 1 and figures 1, 2, and 3 show the dates when price indices were constant or saw negligible change. The problem seems to have been centred on provinces with private sector insurance systems, though BC also had a four-year continuous period with absolutely no change in premiums. Given that there are over 16 million insured vehicles in Canada, with staggered policy renewal dates throughout the year, it is literally impossible to see no change in prices every month over such a prolonged period. At other times in the past few years, changes meant to adjust for quality factors were apparently done in an inconsistent way
