Homosexuality has a long, venerable history of tolerance, but an office wor ker â?¹ gay or not â?¹ will forgo promotion if he doesn¹t marr... View more info

For most Western observers, the Japanese practice of voluntary death, wheth er the self-inflicted sword-stroke of a warrior or the simultaneous suicide of lovers, is shocking and difficult to understand.
