Beyond Kawaii: Studying Japanese Feminities at Cambridge
Edited by Brigitte Steger, Angelika Koch, Christopher Tso

This third collection of studies by young scholars from the University of Cambridge looks beyond the kawaii image and explores the diversity and complexity of being a Japanese woman in the new millennium.
