Once famous for its "quaint charm", Japan is now strikingly western in appearance. Its rapid ascension to world prominence, many Westerners forget that Japanese habits, fears, and values are rooted in centuries of feudal agrarianism.
This Japanese culture and history book reminds us that although the Japanese are capable of accepting enormous change, they can also be resolutely determined to remain Japanese. Their cultural makeup has not changed as rapidly as the nation's economic landscape. To illustrate these points, various topics are examined:
- Japan's first encounters with the West
- Japanese philosophies of government, law, and ethics
- The way that modern institutions like the bureaucracy and the corporation rely on a strong sense of group affiliation.
