Pressestimmen"In no other study of Japanese women are issues of gender and social history so magnificently intertwined. No other work in the English language provides such a detailed view of the multiple configurations of mass culture (film, radio, popular magazines, department stores, fashions, etc.) in the 1920s and 1930s. This is a remarkable accomplishment." Don Roden, author of Schooldays in Japan "Barbara Sato has produced a superb book on the construction of a new women's culture in Japan in the interwar period. It offers us the creation of a new subjectivity-'women'-through the interactions of middle class women with consumer capitalism and the mass media. What Sato's book does so well is to show us the myriad ways that women wrote themselves into the narratives of modernity." Louise Young, author of Japan's Total Empire
