Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled The Crisis of Identity in Contemporary Japanese Film: Personal, Cultural, National contains the table of contents, foreword, and acknowledgements. Japanese cinema, growing from an amalgamation of imported cinematic techniques, theatre, literature, and the visual arts, itself has a history over 100 years long?and within that history has developed conventions and trends that both mirror and contradict those of other national cinemas. This is partly the result of Japan?s cultural cosmopolitanism, and partly the result of its insistence on its own ?uniqueness?. Film is the result of cooperative effort, which makes it a collaborative ?product? in a way that literature is not but drama is.

Keywords: Japan?s cultural cosmopolitanism; Japanese cinema
