Abstract

Review Section depth example of how individuals in particular social settings make use of their social capital to strategize their way through the organization game. It seems to me that the relative weakness of the "multisited" methodology when it comes to grasping both "front" and "back" can be overcome by such approaches; thus, the two may usefully complement each other. Moeran's book certainly adds to the anthropological literature about complex modern organizations. Perhaps its primary benefit to anthropologists comes from the way Moeran relates sociological concepts, particularly those taken from Bourdieu, to the organizational world. By bringing in examples from different bouts of fieldwork, Moeran succeeds in illustrating "frames," "networks," and "fields" and bringing home precisely what they mean and what their role is. This book should also be extremely valuable to a management readership, since it helps to deepen the concept of culture, which is usually treated very shallowly in management literature. Japanese Language, Gender, and Ideology: Cultural Models and Real People. Edited by Shigeko Okamoto and Janet S. Shibamoto Smith. Oxford University Press, Oxford, 2004. xiv, 300 pages. £45.00, cloth; £21.50, paper. Reviewed by Nanette Gottlieb University of Queensland This volume is a welcome addition to
