Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Japanese Housewife Overseas: Adapting to Change of Culture and Status contains the table of contents and the acknowledgements. The book is based on a Ph. D. thesis (Martin 2004) and ongoing fieldwork since 2000, amounting to six years to date. The Japanese women who took part are of three main age groups, broadly defined as young, newly-married women without children, middle-aged women with children of school age or younger and older women with no, or non-dependent, children. The methodology used is integral to the study, involving a close relationship with the women of the Japanese community on which it focuses. The book analyses the overseas transfer process within Japanese companies and financial institutions from the point of view of Japanese women rather than their working husbands, as has been the focus of other studies.
