Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

RUTH BENEDICT (1887 1948) was one of the twentieth century s foremost anthropologists and helped to shape the discipline in the United States and around the world. Benedict was a student and later a colleague of Franz Boas at Columbia, where she taught from 1924. Margaret Mead was one of her students. Benedict s contributions to the field of cultural anthropology are often cited today.

Format: Taschenbuch
Ruth Benedicts book "The Crysanthemum and the Sword" remains to this day the most accurate description of what is indeed a civilisation so different from the Judeo-Christian civilisation of Europe and the United States, that many travelers to Japan never realize just how far away from home they truly are.

Commissioned during the Second world war by the US army as part of an attempt to understand an enemy whose behavior defied conventional explanations, the book draws heavily on Ruth Benedics academic and humanitarian background as well as on many interviews of American Japanese at the time.

Written before the nefarious times of political correctness, the book sympathetically dissects the various social, historical, behavioral and cultural layers of Japanese culture.

Outdated by 50 years? For those who have lived in Japan, it is interesting to discover behind the undoubtedly modern state, time and again the immutable currents of Japanese thought and philosophy described by Ruth Benedict. One of the greates transcultural books ever written. And fun to read, too!

5.0 von 5 Sternen my father recommended this 19. März 2014
Von Eleanor Takahashi iNSKIP - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
when someone asked him about how to understand Japan. He said Ruth Benedict was the first Caucasian to capture the essence of what it meant to be Japanese and explain it to other so they would understand. Ruth Benedict was an adviser to the occupation forces in Japan after World War II. She is credited with helping make the transition from war to peace a success story for both the Japanese people and Occupation forces.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Insightful "outside" view on Japanese culture 21. Dezember 2014
Von Jysoo Lee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was not sure what to expect when I started to read this book on Japanese culture written by an American scholar of Ruth Benedict. As a Korean, the culture of my country is closer to that of Japan than the States, and I was not sure whether there is something I can learn from the book. I was plain wrong --- I thoroughly learned the value of “outside” opinion. I guess there are points she didn’t get right, but it is her who pointed out many important issues of Japanese culture which people living inside just cannot appreciate. She explained several key concepts which are uniquely Japanese, such as importance of hierarchy (“taking one’s proper station”), debt (on) and repayment (gimu, giri), Also explained are the concept of “giri to one’s name”, and the seemingly paradoxical situation of emphasizing self-discipline and generosity on physical pleasure. What I find particularly helpful are examples, taken from real life in Japan, pertaining to the concept she wants to explain.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Sociological classic 12. November 2013
Von David Mcrae - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is a classic of mid 20th century sociology when it was still intelligible, but subject to the merits and demerits of the genre and the times — penetrating insights, literary flair, wide-ranging interests, but an inclination towards substantial and possibly unsubstantiated generalisations. However the point of a book like this is to point you in the right direction and to help you think about the issues with which it deals. It was written under rather unusual circumstances: as a primer for the leaders of the US forces occupying Japan (as they did for six years 1945-1951) to help them understand the people they were minding? sorting out? rebuilding? It's very hard to know what the correct verb might be. The book is written with great care and sympathy; and many of its insights, for me at least, are as prescient today as they were 70 years ago.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Content excellent as expected, bought for Kindle. 29. Dezember 2013
Von Tomas Chudy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The Kindle version contains far too many spelling mistakes and typos which are disturbing while reading. Occurs a few times per page. It is as though someone who does not speak English typed it up from a faded paperback and no-one bothered proof reading it. Thanks Amazon for keeping costs down - you might want to pass those savings on in a lower price next time :-).
3.0 von 5 Sternen Kindle Edition Review 1. Juli 2016
Von Paulo Barreto - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This review is only for the Kindle Edition.

The Kindle edition seems like a poor attempt of OCR with enough review to insert footnotes. The amount of garbled text is beyond belief.

The book itself is a classic. Just buy the paper version and steer away from the Kindle one.
