Acerca de


"Andrea Arai's highly anticipated book how the Japanese state and a range of diverse institutions imbushowsed the figure of the 'child' with the myriad anxieties of economic recession, beginning in the 1990s. The Strange Child powerfully critiques the deleterious effects of neoliberal reforms on Japanese society, particularly children and youth, yet also reveals unexpected possibilities for creativity and community among the 'strange children' now transforming Japan in the aftermath of ongoing financial uncertainty, political restriction, and nuclear disaster." -- Marilyn Ivy * Columbia University * "The Strange Child is a stunning interpretative articulation between historical analysis and detailed ethnographic reporting on an everydayness that brackets its history. In Arai's reckoning, Japan's late 20th century economic recession produced symptoms of unease that were unburdened on the figure of the child, undermining a postwar representation of a managed national identity promoting dependence. She has both constructed a brilliant accounting of how the child was constituted as a problem for restructuring a new collective identity and defined the role played by psychology and education in formulating a remedial ideology recommending greater independence to meet the demands of neoliberal capitalism." -- Harry Harootunian * Columbia University * "The Strange Child offers a lucid and compassionate analysis of the increasingly uncertain lives of children and young adults in post-bubble Japan. With extreme rigor and effortless grace, Arai shows us how the institutions of the state, family, school, law enforcement, and psychology encroach into the lives of youth. The Strange Child is a must read for scholars of Japan studies and anyone interested in process of subject-formation deployed on children and young adults in the contemporary global political-economy of uncertainty." -- Miyako Inoue * Stanford University *
