Postmodernism and Japan is a coherent yet diverse study of the dynamics of postmodernism, as described by Lyotard, Baudrillard, Deleuze, and Guatarri, from the often startling perspective of a society bent on transforming itself into the image of Western "enlightenment" wealth and power. This work provides a unique view of a society in transition and confronting, like its models in the West, the problems induced by the introduction of new forms of knowledge, modes of production, and social relationships.

"An important contribution... The content of the contributions is of uniformly high caliber, raising a host of provocative issues such as the East-West confrontation in the delineation of the premodern-modern-postmodern dialectic..." --Yoshio Iwamoto, World Literature Today
