Product Description

The Modern Family in Japan is an award-winning book that brings together Chizuko Ueno’s groundbreaking essays on the rise and fall of the modern family in Japan. Combining historical, sociological, anthropological, and journalistic methodologies, Ueno delineates in vivid detail how the family has been changing in form and function in the last hundred years. In each chapter Ueno introduces the reader to a different facet of modern family life, ranging from children who fantasize about being orphans to the elderly who confront ‘presenescence.’ The central focus is on the housewife: her history, her ever-changing responsibilities, her ways of surviving mid-life crises.
