Abstract

Review Section 523 tion of overseas Japanese, which Van Compernolle reads as the main legacy of Kyoshi’s work, would take various names in the decades to come, from “surplus population” to “exile” (kimin). Although I fi nd much that is worth reading in Struggling Upward, it is regrettable that in a study dedicated to the discourse of social mobility, the author did not go further to inter- rogate the doctrine of success and social mobility beyond familiar shores and paradigms. Japanese Feminist Debates: A Century of Contention on Sex, Love, and Labor. By Ayako Kano. University of Hawai‘i Press, Honolulu, 2016. x, 320 pages. $80.00, cloth; $28.00, paper. Reviewed by Andrea Germer Heinrich Heine University In the past three decades we have seen a fair number of new monographs and essay collections in European languages that contribute to an intellec- tual history of feminisms in modern Japan. The Anglophone publications receive greater attention than others as they are the most numerous and within the linguistic command of most scholars.
