Flowers in Salt The Beginnings of Feminist Consciousness in Modern Japan

This is the first book to examine the changing roles of women in Japan during the four decades following the Meiji Restoration of 1868 a period of sweeping political social and economic change The book concentrates on those Japanese women who were outspoken critics of their society and the roles women were assigned in it but also assesses the contr. I would give this book 5 stars but I had to take a star and maybe a star and a half off for inaccuracies Let me give you a direct uote written about the High Treason IncidentAfter a secret trial conducted with great dispatch twelve socialists including Koutoku Shuusui and Kanno Suga were hanged Kanno Suga was an anarchist not a socialist and the High Treason Incident was a case of primarily anarchists being hanged Sievers also mislabels Osugi Sakae as a Socialist I am providing a link to a Wikipedia article about the High Treason incident Further Helene Bowen Raddeker s book Treacherous Women of Imperial Japan discusses Kanno Suga at length Given that Wikipedia and the Internet did not exist when Sievers wrote her book it means she had to do legwork on this book in a way that we youngun s of today probably can t really understand Further I ve said elsewhere that inaccuracies and errors are unfortunately unavoidable to some degree in all scholarship for a variety of different reasons However in each instance when I discover an error in a book I wonder what other errors are there that I DIDN T catch because I m not super familiar with the topic I also wonder what are the reasons for the errors Did Sievers have inaccurate information available to her Did she misinterpret the available information Does she not understand the difference between anarchist and socialist Or does she for some reason have a commitment or interest in the word socialist that causes her to skew some bits of history While I enjoyed the book I obviously have reservations about trusting the information contained inside it Yet at the same time I am sympathetic to how hard it is to be one of the forerunners of research on a topic where information is very difficult to get in English or even in JapaneseOther points of confusion for me this author claims that Itou Noe was anti abortion This is possible for sure Anything is possible But Itou Noe was Japan s first Anarcha feminist heavily inspired by Nietzsche and Stirner She was in a relationship with Tsuji Jun an anarchist feminist surrealist playwright and translator of The Ego and It s Own for a brief time It s hard for me to imagine Itou Noe as being Anti Abortion especially for the stated reason of her being opposed to anything unnatural Again people are complicated so people CAN hold contradictory ideas but this particular idea is hard to suare with all other known facts I ve heard seen and read about NoehttpsenwikipediaorgwikiHighTr
