4 Matsuda, Misa (Editor) Personal, Portable, Pedestrian: Mobile Phones in Japanese Life (MIT Press)
The MIT Press 2006 0262590255 / 9780262590259 Paperback Very Good 
The Japanese term for mobile phone, keitai (roughly translated as "somethin g you carry with you"), evokes not technical capability or freedom of movem ent but intimacy and portability, defining a personal accessory that allows constant social connection. Japan's enthusiastic engagement with mobile te chnology has become -- along with anime, manga, and sushi -- part of its tr endsetting popular culture. Personal, Portable, Pedestrian, the first book- length English-language treatment of mobile communication use in Japan, cov ers the transformation of keitai from business tool to personal device for communication and play.The essays in this groundbreaking collection documen t the emergence, incorporation, and domestication of mobile communications in a wide range of social practices and institutions. The book first consid ers the social, cultural, and historical context of keitai development, inc luding its beginnings in youth pager use in the early 1990s. It then discus ses the virtually seamless integration of keitai use into everyday life, co ntrasting it to the more escapist character of Internet use on the PC. Othe r essays suggest that the use of mobile communication reinforces ties betwe en close friends and family, producing "tele-cocooning" by tight-knit socia l groups. The book also discusses mobile phone manners and examines keitai use by copier technicians, multitasking housewives, and school children. Pe rsonal, Portable, Pedestrian describes a mobile universe in which networked relations are a pervasive and persistent fixture of everyday life.

5 McVeigh, Brian J Life in a Japanese Women's College: Learning to be Ladylike
Routledge 1997 0415144566 / 9780415144568 1st Edition Hardcover Near Fine/Near Fine 
A highly collectible rare first edition/printing protected in a new brodart wrapper, no markings or inscriptions, not price clipped or an ex-lib editi on. One third of the Japanese female workforce are "office ladies" and their training takes place at the many women's colleges in Japan. Brian J McVeigh draws on his teaching experiences at one such institution, Takasu International College, to examine the cultural processes at work in the education of women. Life in a Japanese Women's College explores the educational philosophy of the college which aims to produce "ladylike" women. The processes utilized in this aim include: careful management of the body; "Japaneseness"; "internationalism"; and well-orchestrated school functions. This analysis of the college illustrates how the students are prepared for their future dual roles of employees and mothers. It sheds light on broader issues, demonstrating how women's junior college is part of a complex socioeconomic order.

14 Worrall, Julian 21st Century Tokyo: A Guide to Contemporary Architecture

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Tokyo has earned a reputation as one of the most innovative and forward-thi nking cities in the world, and nowhere is this more evident than in its mod ern architecture. Authors and architects Julian Worrall and Erez Golani Sol omon, longtime residents of the city, have selected 83 outstanding examples of contemporary architecture, and introduce them, not just from an archite ctural perspective, but as part of the social, cultural, and political tape stry of the city. In addition to the monumental masterpieces of famous arch itects, "generic" buildings--from office blocks and convenience stores, to high-rise apartment towers -- are also sprinkled throughout the book, creat ing a full and fascinating overview of the architectural landscape of the c ity. Each of the book's seven chapters covers a different geographical district of Tokyo; and each building is accompanied by a selection of stunning black-and-white photographs. Written in an accessible, conversational style, and including maps and access information for each building, this book will appeal to the layman as well as to the professional architect, the visitor to Tokyo as well as to the armchair traveler.
