From Our Editors

Journalist Greenfeld exposes elements of Japanese culture that most Westerners never knew existed--the gangsters who control Japan's drug trade, a lucrative porn industry, and more. Greenfeld uncovers a Japan out of kilter with the orderly society of popular conception, and teaches how Japan's once miraculous economy has given rise to a predatory subculture.

Editorial Reviews

"A grippingly fresh portrait of an unseen country...As faces and stories accumulate like mosaic tiles, Japan's netherworld emerges with almost unbelievable vividness." (Washington Post Book World)
