 Aspects of Globalization in Contemporary Japan

Show Summary Details

Preview

This investigation of the effects of globalization on Japan focuses on areas such as the activities of intellectuals, the expansion of Japanese businesses overseas, and lifestyle changes – notably food and clothing. It concludes that globalization is not a suppressive process in which some global ‘standard’ spreads and covers the local whole. Rather, it is a dynamic movement in which a loose commonality takes shape spatially and temporarily, and at different levels.
