Shunsuke Tanabe ed., Japanese Perceptions of Foreigners
Price: $84.95

In this study, eight young Japanese sociologists analyse quantitative social survey data to understand the new phase of Japanese nationalism. They asked ordinary Japanese people to share their views on foreign residents, using their responses to shed light on Japanese political behaviour. Do patriotic statements reflect hostile attitudes to foreign residents? To what extent do Japanese nationals support the extension of their rights to foreigners? How can we understand political and social exclusion? In attempting to examine these issues, this book reveals the links between voter behaviour and personal orientations towards nationalism, neoliberalism, populism and the rights of foreigners, among other attitudes.
