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.

This book uses the levels of analysis approach first developed by Japanese political economist Kozo Uno to theorize stages of capitalist development. 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.

Winnifred Eaton (1875-1954) may have been the first Asian American woman to publish a novel. Although she was of Chinese-British ancestry, she published under the Japanese pseudonym, Onoto Watanna. She began writing stories at a very early age. She was only fourteen years old when one of her stories was accepted for publication by Montreal newspaper. Before long she had articles published in the United States in several popular magazines, notably the Ladies' Home Journal. Eventually, her compositions were accepted by the prestigious Saturday Evening Post as well as by other popular periodicals. She moved from this to writing novels, capitalizing on her mixed ancestry to pass herself off as a Japanese American by the name of "Onoto Watanna." Under this pseudonym she published Japanese romance novels and short stories, becoming widely read throughout the United States. Her second major novel, A Japanese Nightingale was published in 1900. Her other works include The Heart of Hyacinth (1903), The Love of Azalea (1904), A Japanese Blossom (1906), Daughters of Nijo (1907), Tama (1910), Sunny-San (1922) and Cattle (1923).
