This is the 1st in-depth exam of “half-Japanese” ladies in Japan targeting ethnic, gendered and embodied ‘hybrid’ identities. hard the parable of Japan as a single-race society, those women are obvious suffering to absolutely manoeuvre themselves and negotiate their identities into positions of contestation and keep an eye on over marginalizing discourses which disempower them as ‘others’ inside eastern society as they start to mature. ironically, at different occasions, inside extra empowering substitute discourses of ethnicity, in addition they get pleasure from and rejoice cultural, symbolic, social and linguistic capital which they discursively create for themselves as they arrive to phrases with their developed identities of “Japaneseness”, “whiteness” and “halfness/doubleness”. This booklet has a colorful storyline all through - narrated within the ladies’ personal voices - that follows them out of early life and into the fast actual and emotional development years of early adolescence.
