Japanstudien 11 : Japan im 21. Jahrhundert - Zivilgesellschaft und Staat in der postindustriellen Moderne

Günther, Ines (edt.); Kreitz-Sandberg, Susanne GND (edt.); Nawrocki, Johann GND (edt.)

Six of eleven articles in volume 11 of Japanstudien deal directly with the topic of “Japan Facing the Twenty-First Century – Civil Society and State in Postindustrial Modernity.” They provide insights into the dynamics of the interaction between the state and its social participants. The articles present case studies on new forms of non-government and non-economic related voluntary associations as they have been formed in Japan recently. Eight book reviews widen the spectrum of themes and disciplines included in this yearbook.
