Ken-ichi Ohbuchi ed., Social Justice in Japan: Concepts, Theories and Paradigms Paperback
Price: $54.95

Fairness has steadily emerged as an important pivotal point of evaluation among the Japanese when examining social issues. Until now, however, there was insufficient investigation into issues relating to the Japanese view of justice, such as the criteria the Japanese use to judge fairness, the cognitive processes of fairness-judgement, or how evaluating a certain social event as fair or unfair alters peoplefs responses to that event. This book is a compilation of papers by Japanese scholars who are grappling with these very issues.

The authors are researchers from the fields of social psychology and sociology, and they approach the question of the Japanese view of fairness through diverse methods, including theoretical analysis, mathematical analysis, laboratory experimentation, survey research, and field studies.
