Losing Face: Status Politics in Japan - Pharr, Susan J

How does a "homogeneous" society like Japan treat the problem of social inequality? "Losing Face" looks beyond conventional structural categories (race, class, ethnicity) to focus on conflicts based on differences in social status. Three rich and revealing case studies explore crucial asymmetries of age, sex, and former caste.
