Evolving for centuries in relative isolation, sport in Japan
developed a unique character reflective of Japanese culture and
society. In recent decades, Japan's drive towards cultural and
economic modernization has consciously incorporated a modernization
of its sports cultures. Japan, Sport and Society provides insights
into this process, revealing the tensions between continuity and
change, tradition and modernity, the local and the global in a
culture facing the new economic and political realities of our
modern world. The book explores three broad areas of interest:
- sport and modern society in Japan
- current issues in social reconstruction and reproduction in
- modernization, globalization and sport in Japan.
Providing unprecedented access to new work from Japanese
scholars, and raising key questions of globalization and cultural
identity, this text represents a fascinating resource for students
and researchers of sport and society.
