Book Description:
While other research has concentrated on expatriate Japanese male professionals, this book examines what a husband's overseas work transfer means to his wife. It explores how wives' roles are modified in the host country as well as life enriching aspects and long term effects, which may ultimately affect Japan as a whole as well as women individually. In addition, 'Living in the UK' addresses the vexed question of career opportunities for middle class Japanese women. It highlights changing perceptions of returnee children (kikokushijo) as well as the important role that women play in affecting British attitudes towards Japan. This book will be welcomed by students and academics in Japanese Studies, including Anthropology, Sociology, Gender, Migration and Globalization, as well as Business Studies and the non specialist reader interested in Japan.
