This is a lively discussion of Japanese popular culture from an anthropological perpective. An international team of authors considers a broad range of topics, including sumo, karaoke, manga, women's magazines, soccer and morning television. Through these topics--many of which have never previously been addressed by scholars--the contributors also explore several deeper themes: the construction of gender in Japan; the impact of globalization and modern consumerism; and the rapidly shifting boundaries of Japanese culture and identity.

Reintroduce your mind to your body and develop a healthier, more relaxed approach to life. One of the first exercise systems to acknowledge the link between mind and body, Pilates will not give you bulging biceps--or leave you feeling exhausted after each session. Instead, Pilates provides you with a balanced approach to toning your body, correcting your skeletal alignment, and improving your posture and coordination. After a brief introduction to the principles of this exercise system, this book provides the newcomer with descriptions of basic exercises, all illustrated to show precise body movements and postures. By developing mental awareness of your body, Pilates brings the mind into closer connection with the body rather than allowing the mind to control it.
