Mathews, Gordon


"A unique and provocative contribution to the fundamental question of what makes life worth living. Mathews works creatively with the similarities and differences in the United States and Japan to shed light on cultural values in the two societies."--John L. Caughey, author ofImaginary Social Worlds "Amidst trade wars, when Japanese workers are made into robots and trade negotiators into modern-day samurai, one longs for a sense of what Japanese humans are like. Gordon Mathews provides the answer. . . . His work is penetrating and rings true."--Ezra F. Vogel, author ofJapan as Number One "An extraordinary book. Mathews's analysis of each pair of narratives is clear, delightful, and satisfying."--Takie Sugiyama Lebra, author ofAbove the Clouds: Status Culture of the Modern Japanese NobilityMathews, Gordon is the author of 'What Makes Life Worth Living? How Japanese and Americans Make Sense of Their Worlds', published 1996 under ISBN 9780520201330 and ISBN 0520201337.
