Abstract
 
Description
Japan today confronts an array of disturbing social trends: a population of more than a million hikikomori (young men who shut themselves in their rooms, withdrawing from society), and growing numbers of “parasite singles” (single women who refuse to leave home, marry, or bear children). Pulitzer prize winning journalist Zielenziger argues that Japan's tradition-steeped society, aversion to change, and distrust of individuality are stifling economic revival, political reform, and social evolution.
