"This excellent book will surely become a mainstay on the reading lists of anthropologists, sociologists, and Japan specialists for many years to come. [It] provides rich and accessible ethnographic examples to illustrate basic anthropological theory. The underlying theme is that although Japanese "culture" produced specifically Japanese social institutions, these institutions can be studied using mainstream techniques. The book is a model of its kind in the evenness of its contributions, the quality of its writing, and the thoroughness of its index. Congratulations." --Monumenta Nipponica
