How To Reach Japan By Subway
America'S Fascination With Japanese Culture, 1945-1965
de Meghan Warner Mettler
Sobre o livro
Examines the shibui phenomenon, in which American consumers embraced Japanese culture while still exoticizing this new aesthetic. By examining shibui through the popularity of samurai movies, ikebana flower arrangement, bonsai cultivation, home and garden design, and Zen Buddhism, Mettler provides a new context for understanding how Americans encountered a foreign nation in their everyday lives.
