"There simply is no other book like this. No other family history presents such a range of insights into the ways in which individuals, women as well as men, have had to cope with changes wrought by the social modernization of Japanese family culture."--James L. McClain, author of Japan: A Modern History "Isami's House is the chronicle of a remarkable family, neither aristocratic nor famous, whose rise and decline seem to parallel Japan's. It makes absorbing reading, affording a panoramic view of a rural family's rise to local prominence at the dawn of the modern Japanese nation state, the expansion of its presence to Tokyo and then the empire, its experience in war and defeat, and finally its postwar reconfiguration as a dispersed urban family."--Norma Field, author of In the Realm of a Dying Emperor: A Portrait of Japan at Century's End

Taking as its departure point the decision by the town of Kaminoseki to essentially preserve its existence by risking its environment, this book historicizes that extraordinary decision by reconstructing the everyday lives of Kaminosekis townspeople in vivid details across the modern period, so as to bring new understanding to explore the larger phenomenon of decline that is affecting not only Japan but most of the world.
