Publisher Synopsis

I cannot recommend this book highly enough to any one with an interest in the interplay of culture, crime, and law. * The Law and Politics Book Review * The Japanese Mafia is an exceptional piece of scholarship in an area that has needed such a work for a long time. The book will appeal to academics from across the disciplines and to policymakers and practitioners interested in the challenges posed by organized crime. * H. Friman, Journal of Japanese Studies * In this superb book Peter Hill challenges prevailing interpretations of the yakuza and in doing so explores the pathology and dynamism of contemporary Japan ... Hill writes with authority and panache, demonstrating a command of the literature while alerting readers to the pitfalls of various data. In looking under this rock, he tells a compelling story about Japan's underworld, showing us how it is far more significant, and rapidly changing, than is commonlyassumed. A wry wit and judicious doses of colorful anecdotes leavens this complex and revisionist interpretation of the relationship between the yakuza, law and the state. * Jeff Kingston, Japan Times * Peter Hill, a British researcher with first-hand knowledge of Japanese society, offers a remarkable insight into the structures and workings of this mysterious organisation ... The book is as fascinating as it is informative. * Journal of the Commonwealth Lawyers' Association * Read more...
