In Japan: A Guide to Traditions, Customs and Etiquette veteran Japanologist Boye Lafayette De Mente unlocks the mysteries of KATA – the cultural forms that shape and define Japanese attitudes, behavior and character.These forms are responsible for creating the unique traits and talents which distinguishes the Japanese people. Virtually all interactions in Japan are governed by KATA and they remain the key to understanding Japanese business etiquette as well as daily communication. In seventy short, clear essays ranging from “The Art of Bowing” and “Importance of the Apology” to “The Compulsion for Quality” and “Exchanging Name Cards”, De Mente unravels the complexities of Japanese culture and etiquette by exploring the origin, nature, use and influence of KATA in Japanese life. By virtually delving into Japanese history and the collective Japanese psyche, readers will experience the modern expressions of this ancient culture and specific way of thinking.
