Chapter Summary

This bibliography section contains a list of reference books, articles, and other works that have been cited for the book The Japanese Housewife Overseas: Adapting to Change of Culture and Status. 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. In view of the clearly-defined gender roles that developed in post-war Japan, which meant that husbands concentrated on the workplace while their wives focused on the home, it examines what it means for contemporary Japanese women to leave all that is familiar in Japan to live in the United Kingdom (UK) for a husband's job with which women have little connection.

Keywords: Japanese companies; Japanese women; overseas transfer process; United Kingdom (UK)
