This short work presents a configuration of the important elements to be found in contemporary Japanese social life, and attempts to shed new light on Japanese society.

naksne Nakane deals with his own society as a social anthropologist using some of the methods which he was accustomed to applying in examining any other society. However, its form is not that of a scientific thesis as may be seen at once from the absence of a bibliography; the author also refrains from quoting any statistical chi or precise data directly obtained from field surveys.

Nakane has tried to construct a structural image of Japanese society, synthesizing the major distinguishing features to be found in Japanese life.


Chie Nakane – Wikipedia

He has drawn evidence almost at random from a number of different types of community to be found in Japan today–industrial enterprises, government organizations, educational institutions, intellectual groups, religious communities, political parties, village communities, individual household and so on.

Throughout this investigation of groups in such nakwne fields, Nakane has concentrated my analysis on individual jakane and interpersonal relations which provide the base of both the group organization and the structural tendencies dominating in the development of a group.

Reviews “A brilliant wedding of ‘national nakanne studies and analyses of small societies through the structural approach of British anthropology. One is of course reminded of Ruth Benedict’s Chrysanthemum and the Sword which deals also with Japanese national culture.


Studies by Margaret Mead and Geoffrey Gorer deal with other national cultures; however, all of these studies take off from national psychology. Professor Nakane comes to explanation of the behavior of Japanese through analysis naiane of historical social structure of Japanese society, beginning with the way any two Japanese perceive each other, and following through to the nature of the Japanese corporation and the whole society.

Japanese Society

Nakane’s remarkable achievement, which has already given new insight about themselves to the Japanese, promises to open up a new field of large-society comparative social anthropology which is long overdue. Even those–or, perhaps, most of all those–who know Japan intimately will be grateful to Nalane Nakane for her brilliant study.
