Reading a Japanese Film, written by a pioneer of Japanese film studies in the United States, provides viewers new to Japanese cinema with the necessary tools to construct a deeper understanding of some of the most critically acclaimed and thoroughly entertaining films ever made. In her introduction, Keiko McDonald presents a historical overview and outlines a unified approach to film analysis. Sixteen "readings" of films currently available on DVD with English subtitles put theory into practice as she considers a wide range of work, from familiar classics by Ozu and Kurosawa to the films of a younger generation of directors.

Stage theory is understood as a mid-range theory informed both by the theory of a purely capitalist society and by historical analysis. The four stages of mercantilism, liberalism, imperialism, and consumerism are theorized according to an abstract type of capital accumulation, which is understood broadly to include mutually supporting economic, ideological, legal, and political practices.

About the Author

The Tuttle Publishing Company was established in 1948 in Rutland, Vermont, and Tokyo, Japan, and is today regarded as a premier publisher and seller of books rooted in Asian culture, language, and history.

The company's founder, Charles Egbert Tuttle, Jr., after graduating Phillips Exeter Academy and Harvard University felt his call of duty and joined the US military. Tuttle was sent to serve under General MacArthur’s staff in Japan immediately following World War II. His primary mission was a post-war revival of the Japanese Publishing Industry.

Tuttle remained in Japan after honorable discharge and began to lay the foundation for what was soon to be the birth of Tuttle Publishing.
