Summary

Summary

As Dr. Norbeck points out, internal contrasts within Japanese society have always been sharp, & they have grown rather than diminished as time has passed. There are many ways of life in Japan, & in their variety they reflect the unevenness of change in a dynamic society that has moved from feudalism since 1868 to industrial urbanization, & that has recovered since 1945 from a crushing military defeat to attain now its greatest period of prosperity.
