"Patriarchy in East Asia" varies greatly according to the interplay between cultural norms, economic change, and government policies. This book provides an historical study and theoretical analysis of the transitions that have occurred in the status of women during the course of modernization and industrialization in five East Asian societies Japan, South Korea, North Korea, Taiwan, and China, the latter four societies presenting an ideal show-case of the effects of social regimes, captialist or socialist, on different ethnic cultures Korean and Chinese. This analysis is interwoven with a discussion of contemporary issues such as the persistence of tradition and gender discrimination, how gender roles undermine the development of healthier marriage and family relationships and better relations among the generations, the lack of full equality for women in employment, falling birthrates, and rising divorce rates. The book the first study of its kind undertaken by a sociologist who is also fluent in all of the local languages also describes the interplay between cultural norms, economic change, government policies, and ways of thinking among the subjects relating to social change.
