About This Item

New York: Kodansha International, 1994. First Edition. First Printing. Hardcover. Very good/very good. 342 pages. Notes, index. Signed by the author. An American journalist who has spent many years in Japan and who married into a Japanese family, Clayton Naff offers an insider's view of the transformation of this island nation. He traces the decline of authoritarian power structures, the increasing opportunities for women, the willingness of "salarymen" to quit lifetime jobs in search of more rewarding (and less exhausting) work, and other trends with far-reaching social, political, and economic implications. Extensively documented and engagingly written, About Face challenges outdated stereotypes with an informed survey of a society undergoing a quiet revolution.
