From Library Journal:

Is Japan the homogenized, monolithic nation it's often portrayed to be? Suzuki, a third-generation Canadian and host of the PBS program The Nature of Things, and Oiwa, a Japanese anthropologist, traveled around Japan talking to people who do not fit the stereotype but are "making a difference." The authors visited the Ainu, Okinawans, and Koreans, as well as Japanese set apart from the majority?the burakumin ("untouchable" caste), and Japanese who have returned after a period abroad. The authors met activists working for peace, human rights, and the environment, as well as common people trying to retain their heritage through a return to traditional ways of life. They find in Japan a rich diversity of cultures and individual expression. This strong, thoughtful book will find an audience in both academic and public libraries.?Harold M.
