Book Description

11 Jan 1993 Philip E.Lilienthal Books
How does a "homogeneous" society like Japan treat the problem of social inequality? "Losing Face" looks beyond conventional catagories such as class, race and ethnicity to focus on conflicts based on differences in social status. Three case studies explore crucial asymmetries of age, sex and the legacy of caste to provide a testimony to the problems inferiors face in pressing grievances in a consensus society.
