Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of reference books and articles relevant to the book Youth Movements, Trauma and Alternative Space in Contemporary Japan, which presents a brief historical background of two specific collective traumas that have been important in shaping freeter activism. These collective traumas include: the "lost decade" following the burst of the economic bubble in the early 1990s and the perceived failure of radical protest in the 1970s. The changes brought on Japanese society with the onset of the post-bubble recession in the early 1990s and the ensuing neoliberal reforms and deregulations that gained force from the mid-1990s onwards have been important factors shaping freeter activism.

Keywords: freeter activism; Japan; Japanese society; traumas
