Written in an accessible style and illustrated with more than 20 photographs, Japanese Popular Culture and Globalization combines a historical approach to the evolution and diffusion of Japanese pop with interdisciplinary perspectives from anthropology, literary studies, political science, and the visual arts.

“The riotous, rich and multilayered nature of Japanese popular culture is crisply presented in this delightful overview. Hardcore student fans, bewildered teachers, and clueless scholars will all benefit from the way William Tsutsui makes sense of the diverse styles, narratives and images surfacing in manga, anime, TV drama, music, and cinema. Professor Tsutsui’s engaging guide to some of the most important themes, historical threads, and scholarly theories found in such a vast cultural domain is guaranteed to charm readers and to enhance our appreciation of its irresistible appeal and global reach.” - Laura Miller, Eiichi Shibusawa-Seigo Arai Professor of Japanese Studies, University of Missouri-St. Louis
Co-editor, Bad Girls of Japan “As is always the case with William Tsutsui, this work is informed, informative, and a pleasure to read. Tsutsui’s trademark enthusiasm for and knowledge of his subject shines through across a wonderful variety of topics, from ‘Pokemon’ to ‘Soft Power.’ I look forward to sharing this with my students in the classroom.” - Susan J.
