出版社からのコメント

How has the Japanese government persuaded its citizens to save substantial portions of their incomes? And to care for the elderly within the family? How did the public come to support legalized prostitution as in the national interest? What roles have women's groups played in Japan's "economic miracle"? What actually unites the Japanese to achieve so many economic and social goals that have eluded other polities? Here Sheldon Garon helps us to understand this mobilizing spirit as he taps into the intimate relationships everyday Japanese have with their government. To an extent inconceivable to most Westerners, state directives trickle into homes, religious groups, and even into individuals' sex lives, where they are frequently welcomed by the Japanese and reinforced by their neighbors. In a series of five compelling case studies, Garon demonstrates how average citizens have cooperated with government officials in the areas of welfare, prostitution, and household savings, and in controlling religious "cults" and promoting the political participation of women.

The state's success in creating a nation of activists began before World War II, and has hinged on campaigns that mobilize the people behind various policies and encourage their involvement at the local level. For example, neighborhoods have been socially managed on a volunteer basis by smallbusiness owners and housewives, who strive to rid their locales of indolence and to contain welfare costs. The story behind the state regulation of prostitution is a more turbulent one in which many lauded the flourishing brothels for preserving Japanese tradition and strengthening the "family system," while others condemned the sexual enslavement of young women.

In each case, we see Japanese citizens working closely with the state to recreate "community" and shape the thought and behavior of fellow citizens. The policies often originate at the top, but in the hands of activists they take on added vigor. This phenomenon, which challenges the conventional dichotomy of the "state" versus the "people," is well worth exploring as Western governments consider how best to manage their own changing societies.

レビュー

"An excellent book. . . Garon has chosen his subject well and. . . he handles it with balance and authority."--Patrick Smith, "The Nation"

First half and intro/cncl 2010/11/8

Like the other reviewer, William Pease, I managed the first half and the conclusion. I think this book is about the way the state calludes with certain segments of the population to produce social outcomes. Negotiation, agreement, and concensus, rather than totalitarianism. I think. Speaking as someone who generally enjoys academics and often chooses to read scholarly works for fun, I found Molding Japanese Minds excessively dry and obscure with an overabundance of superfluous if not exactly tangential details. It's as if the author set about creating a test for the reader: do you have the power to overcome the mind-numbing force of excessive detail and blase prose to understand the point of this book? Aside from the facts that my mind kept wandering and that I kept wishing I hadn't gone to the trouble of getting this book out from the library, I was disappointed in finding it difficult to extrapolate the work onto my own interests in Japan. I suspect this book could be very useful if you were interested in the specific topics the author uses as case studies. I won't be doing any searches on the author name Sheldon Garon, however.

Four good interwar examples of expanding state power 2000/11/22
投稿者 William Pease - (Amazon.com)

Memorable. This review is for the first half and intro/concl. Four examples of the expanding cultural power of the state in Japan, primarily interwar with 19th century background. I found the case for state power in prostitution and cafe society an arresting topic. However, the section on cults contains good horror tales of gov. oppression, and the growth of Christian societies and welfare-type activity new to me.
