Depression in Japan:
Psychiatric Cures for a Society in Distress
Junko Kitanaka

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"The management of depression in Japan differs markedly from treatments elsewhere, and this book draws out historical examples of the ways in which the nation has imagined and treated sadness and insanity. The author's findings do not conform to the familiar narratives of medicalization, in which social issues are depoliticized. Cogent and persuasive, the book offers a sophisticated analysis of a complex problem, making a major contribution to the field of medicine and mental health in Japan, and to medical anthropology and modern psychiatry."--Amy Borovoy, Princeton University
