This Handbook explores the challenges demographic change poses to
today's Japan. The first part provides the fundamental data
involved, and the subsequent two parts address the social and
cultural aspects of Japan's demographic change. Parts four and five
are dedicated to the political, economic and social security
aspects of demographic change. The Handbook brings together a group
of international scholars of various disciplinary backgrounds to
take issue with the world's fastest demographic transition. Topics
include the dynamics of gender roles, images of age, policy
formation, labour market structures, pension system, living
arrangements, ethical values, and many more. Against the background
of Japan's demographic change, the latest developments in these
fields are being introduced, and whenever appropriate set into a
context of historical and/or international comparison. This
Handbook is the first comprehensive publication in English on
Japan's demographic change. Contributors include: Makoto Atoh, Hans
