Description
S. N. Eisenstadt, one of the world's leading social theorists, provides a monumental synthesis of japanese history, religion, culture, and social organization. Equipped with a thorough command of the literature, Eisenstadt explores the Japanese historical legacy and its impact on the japanese experience of modernity. Eschewing the polemicism of structuralist or culturalist approaches, he expands his investigative framework to include a keenly systematic, broadly comparative analysis. What emerges is an innovative new construction, focusing on the non-ideological character of Japanese civilization as well as its infinite capacity to recreate community, through an ongoing past.
