Cool Japanese Men - cover

Following the successful publication four years ago of Manga Girl Seeks Herbivore Boy: Studying Japanese Gender at Cambridge, we are delighted to announce a second book by our recent Japanese Studies graduates. The book has been edited by Brigitte Steger, Senior Lecturer in Modern Japanese Studies and Angelika Koch, former PhD student and Postdoctoral Researcher at Cambridge (currently at the University of Ghent), who also supervised the studies.

Cool Japanese Men: Studying New Masculinities at Cambridge is a collection of well researched and thoroughly up-to-date essays which explore what it means to be a 'cool' man in Japan today.
