"This is an impious book--every bit as irreverent as it is enlightening, and certainly the more entertaining for that fact... The essays that make up the volume set out to remove Japan from the cultural and geopolitical vacuum in which it paradoxically finds itself and position it instead within a truly global framework for critical analysis." --Edward Fowler, Journal of Japanese Studies
