Pt. 1. The essentials of society: men and women. Hard men, soft men, ideal men, real men: the constructing of maleness. From reigning empress to silly servant: the historical downgrading of the female. Tradition meets the modern world: the hesitant emergence of the new woman. Boys and madonnas, father-figures and virgins: relations between the sexes. The blurrings of gender: homosexuality, bisexuality, and androgyny. -- Pt. 2. On the fringes of society: minorities and other marginals. Impure outcasts: the Burakumin. Primitives: the Ainu. Not quite us: Koreans in Japan. Heroic villains: the Yakuza. Off-centre: Okinawans and other outer regional groups. The dreaded outside threat: foreigners and "foreign-tainted" groups. Failures: day-labourers and vagrants. Unwholesome: the diseased. Imperfect and neglected: the physically disabled. Selfish and ungrateful: the mentally impaired. -- Pt. 3. The mainstream of society: being a normal Japanese. Being young: socialisation, education, and muted rebellion. Being adult: social responsibility, work, and families. Being old: Confucian ideals and the reality of decrepitude. Being oneself: the individual in a "groupist" society. Being Japanese: a race apart? -- Conclusion: Japan as itself, and the aesthetics of purity
