Respect in Japanese Childhood, Adolescence, and Society
Sugie, Shuji; Shwalb, David W.; Shwalb, Barbara J.
New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, n114 p39-52 Win 2006
The meaning of respect changed historically in postwar Japan, and respect as a concept is important yet unnoticed in postmodern Japanese society. Contrary to the perception of Japanese socialization as instilling conformist respect and obedience in children and adolescents, this chapter shows why one commentator predicts that Japan may be changing from a "society of respect" to a "society of scorn." (Contains 4 tables.)
