In this study, eight young Japanese sociologists analyze quantitative social survey data to understand the new phase of Japanese nationalism. They asked ordinary Japanese people to share their views on foreign residents, using their responses to shed light on Japanese political behavior. Do patriotic statements reflect hostile attitudes to foreign residents? To what extent do Japanese nationals support the extension of their rights to foreigners? How can we understand political and social exclusion? In examining these issues, the book reveals the links between voter behavior and personal orientations towards nationalism, neo-liberalism, populism, and the rights of foreigners, among other attitudes.

Reviews

"...a valuable contribution to studies on migrants and their acceptance in Japanese society and it unveils, through empirical methods, links between various aspects of nationalism, political orientation and socioeconomic characteristics." - Pacific Affairs, Vol. 88, No. 2, June 2015
