Kabuki is well known for its exaggerated acting, flamboyant costumes and makeup, and unnatural storylines. The onnagata, usually male actors who perform the roles of women, have been an important aspect of kabuki since its beginnings in the 17th century. In a �labyrinth� of gendering, the practice of men playing women�s roles has affected the manifestations of femininity in Japanese society. In this case study of how gender has been defined and redefined through the centuries, Maki Isaka examines how the onnagata�s theatrical gender �impersonation� has shaped the concept and mechanisms of femininity and gender construction in Japan. The implications of the study go well beyond disciplinary and geographic cloisters.

This spirited and engaging multidisciplinary volume pins its focus on the lived experiences and cultural depictions of women's mobility and labor in Japan. The theme of "modern girls" continues to offer a captivating window into the changes that women's roles have undergone during the course of the last century. Here we encounter Japanese women inhabiting the most modern of spaces, in newly created professions, moving upward and outward, claiming the public life as their own: shop girls, elevator girls, dance hall dancers, tour bus guides, airline stewardesses, international beauty queens, overseas teachers, corporate soccer players, and even female members of the Self-Defense Forces. Directly linking gender, mobility, and labor in 20th and 21st century Japan, this collection brings to life the ways in which these modern girls—historically and contemporaneously—have influenced social roles, patterns of daily life, and Japan's global image. It is an ideal guidebook for students, scholars, and general readers alike.

In the first extensive study of Japan in Australian literary consciousness, Narrating the Other provides a broad chronological exploration of Australian writers' representations of the Japanese from the late 19th to the 21st century. A comprehensive examination of Australian novels, stories, and memoirs reveals the powerful and continuing influence of depictions of Japan and its people. Images of 'Madame Butterfly, ' 'the stranger, ' 'the enemy, ' and later 'the ally' or 'partner' vary according to authors, situations, and wider international relations. Narrating the Other identifies the patterns that Australian authors have used to portray and evaluate the Japanese, the changing nature of these patterns, their contextual relationship, and their contribution to the formation of wider Australian views on Japan and the Japanese.
