Religion and Society in Modern Japan: Selected Readings
by Mark Mullins, Paul L. Swanson and Shimazono Susumu

Designed for the undergraduate level classroom study, this anthology provides the students with interpretations and perspectives on the significance of religion in modern Japan.
Emphasis is placed on the sociocultural expressions of religion in everyday life, rather than on religious texts or traditions. Readings have been selected under four categories to show the diverse forms of Japanese religiosity and the continuing role of religion in this modernized society. These are:

Japanese Religiosity
Religion and the State
Traditional Religious Institutions: Decline andAdaptation
New Religious Movements
A particular strength of this collection is the combination of current Japanese and Western scholarship.
