Integrating the past half-century of cross-cultural research on Japanese childrearing and socialization, this book places current findings in their historical context and offers concrete suggestions for new research. It couples retrospectives by influential senior scholars with reaction papers by younger-generation scholars, illuminating the lasting value of past scholarship and mentoring and illustrating how theories and methodology in the field have evolved over time. In addition, there is discussion of the implications of research on Japan for the general study of culture and development.

"This anthology is a remarkable antidote to the impatient disposition of the current academia that dismisses earlier scholarly achievements as irrelevant. Junior authors, each paired with seniors, offer not only support but disagreements and more updated alternatives, and yet all in a refreshingly collaborative and cumulative spirit. This editorial strategy is also effective in highlighting major theoretical issues and discoveries in the comparative study of Japanese childrearing. I want to share what I have learned from this innovative approach with colleagues in developmental psychology, cross-cultural psychology, education, anthropology, sociology, and Japanese studies. It is a model text as well." --Takie Sugiyama Lebra, Ph.D., Department of Anthropology, University of Hawaii<br><br>"This valuable set of essays captures the rich history of the attempt, over the last four decades, to understand the differences between Japanese and American childrearing. The contributions of Caudill, Azuma, Hess, Vogel, and others are honored in a style that marries the easy flow of autobiography with the technical prose of social science." --Jerome Kagan, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, Harvard University<br><br>"This fascinating and thought-provoking book builds bridges between such counterparts as generation of researchers, disciplines, cultures, and historical times. The most effective way of crossing the bridges, however, will be talks within the reader's mind. I look forward to active debates among readers and within the individual reader that will be inspired by this valuable book." --Hideo Kojima, Ph.D., School of Education, Nagoya University, JAPAN<br>
