"""Foreign Otherness in Japanese Media analyzes contemporary Japanese
society by examining the ways in which Japanese media portrays Latin
America and therefore how Japanese readers construct their idea of it.
Offering a detailed methodology and results from field research, and
based on concepts such as otherness, cultivation analysis and the theory
of the autopoietic social system as a framework, this book considers
the impact of mass media on the construction of non-dominant foreign
cultural subjectivities in Japan, and explores the dynamics of otherness
in the country. As such, it is apt for scholars in Japanese studies, media
studies, and anyone interested in the interaction between foreigners or
Latin Americans and Japan, or in relations between mainstream society
and minority groups.""
