Summary
"This book provides a detailed examination of judicial decision-making in Japanese cases involving sexual violence. It describes the culture of 'eroticised violence' in Japan, which locates culpability in the feminine body, and the legal system which encourages homogeneity and conformity in decision-making. It details the significant legal constraints confronting women claiming sexual assaults through an analysis of specific case studies and provides a discussion of recent moves to address the problems."--Jacket
