Atsuko Suzuki ed., Gender and Career in Japan Paperback
    Price: $49.95

    Gender has long been a major determinant of individualsf work-career and life trajectory in Japanese society. The complexity of this social phenomenon has inspired the five contributors to this volume, edited by Atsuko Suzuki, to probe the nature and ramifications of changing gender norms in Japan from a multidisciplinary perspective incorporating sociology, social psychology and economics. As they seek to elucidate the mutual interrelationship between the macro and micro dimensions of society and the individual, the various contributors also challenge the unfairness inherent in the association between career and gender, and promote a deeper understanding of the issues involved, in anticipation of their resolution. The specificity and universality of Japanfs situation is further highlighted by comparison with its near neighbor, Korea.
