And probably the next-best known study of the country is Chie Nakane’s Japanese Society (1970), a somewhat similarly broadly interpretive study which is an example of ‘anthropology at home’. 9 In fact, it may be that many of the books by anthropologists which have been most widely read, and are most vividly remembered, by their colleagues and a wider public, are like these two – not field monographs of a more traditional type.
