"In this book, Eiko Ikegami uncovers a complex history of social life in which aesthetic images become central to Japan's cultural identities. Combining sociological insights on organizations with prodigious scholarship on cultural history, this book explores such wide-ranging topics as the central role of networks in performing arts, tea ceremony and haiku, the politics of kimono aesthetics, the rise of commercial publishing, the popularization of etiquette and manners, the vogue of androgyny in kabuki performance, and the rise of tacit modes of communication."--BOOK JACKET.
