About This Book

This ethnography follows the lives of two very different Japanese men entering political life in two very different communities. One is the rural leader of a citizens' referendum movement, while the other hopes to succeed his father in a Tokyo ward assembly. In her groundbreaking analysis, LeBlanc provides a vibrant and up-to-date picture of politics in Japan today and addresses: masculine gender expectations in a male-dominated political world; the connection between gendered identity and ethical being; and the process by which men who are neither dominated nor marginal to their communities assert themselves both with and against power. With notes and index.
