Junsuke Hara and Kazuo Seiyama, Inequality amid Affluence: Social Stratification in Japan Paperback
Price: $49.95

The two leading sociologists of social stratification in Japan argue that most Japanese have attained a level of income in which they no longer suffer from poverty and starvation, a situation in which Japan has achieved an equalization of basic wealth. However, at the same time, there has been no progress towards the equalization of upper wealth. Inequalities exist in many areas including income, assets, academic background, occupation, gender and lifestyles.
