Summary:
This work provides a comprehensive, empirically grounded study of the production, circulation, and reception of Japanese popular culture in Asia. While many studies typically employ an interactive approach that focuses on the 'meaning' of popular culture from an anthropological or cultural studies point of view, 'Regionalizing Culture' emphasises that the consumption side and contextual meaning of popular culture are not the only salient factors in accounting for its proliferation.
