"Japan: A Guide to Traditions, Customs and Etiquette : Kata as the Key to Understanding the Japanese"
Bok av De Mente
This is the first book to explain in detail why the Japanese think and behave as they do. In Japan: A Guide to Traditions, Customs and Etiquette veteran Japanologist Boye Lafayette De Mente unlocks the mysteries of Kata - the cultural forms that shape and define Japanese etiquette, character and world view. These forms are responsible for creating the unique traits and talents which distinguish the Japanese people. Kata governs virtually all interactions in Japan and remains the key to understanding Japanese customs, business etiquette and daily communication. In seventy short, clear essays ranging from "The Art of Bowing" and "Importance of the Apology" to "The Compulsion for Quality" and "Exchanging Name Cards," De Mente unravels the complexities of Japanese culture by exploring the origin, nature, use and influence of Kata in Japanese life. By virtually delving into Japanese history and the collective Japanese psyche, readers will experience the modern expressions of this ancient culture and specific way of thinking.
