This study is a product of a media project undertaken by the London International Research Exchange. Contributors include academics, researchers and working journalists. The volume seeks to shed new light on the West's long and uneasy relationship with Japan, tracing its evolution from the 19th century to 1995 - the 50th anniversary of the Pacific War. The authors question received notions of cultural difference in the discourses of politics, anthropology, and journalism. The book should be of interest to those in the fields of media and cultural studies, anthropology and Japanese studies.
