Item description

"In terms of the academic world system, Japan exists on the periphery. The Japanese are anthropological natives in the sense that although they have long been objects of Western representation, their voices have seldom been heard by those at the center. The frequent neglect of Japanese scholarship on Japan by Japanologists in the Anglophone community attests to this point. The central objective of this book, then, is to reveal the global power dynamics involved in the structure of anthropological knowledge."
