Summary:
Tracing the history of the koseki registration system from its inception in the Meiji era through its use in Japan's colonial holdings in the pre-war era & to the present day, this book challenges the very foundations of the system, arguing that it promotes prejudice & discrimination & fosters a divisive understanding of the 'Japanese' as a people.
