Akihiro Ogawa is Professor of Japanese Studies at the Asia Institute, the University of Melbourne, Australia. He is the author of The Failure of Civil Society? The Third Sector and the State in Contemporary Japan, also published by SUNY Press.Review:
“...a very readable book that never fails to remind us of the lived reality of the teachers, volunteers, social entrepreneurs, and the people they are helping cope with the changes that are ongoing in Japan’s society and economy.” ― Journal of Japanese Studies
“...thought-provoking ... Lifelong Learning in Neoliberal Japan is a thoroughly engrossing and, at times, unsettling account of one critical apparatus of neoliberalism in contemporary Japan ... The book will be essential reading for anyone interested in neoliberal politics, risk and risk management, state-civil society relations, precarity, and the challenges of life in contemporary Japan.” ― Pacific Affairs
