Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. This fascinating book - part ethnography, part memoir - traces Japan s vibrant cafe society over one hundred and thirty years. Merry White traces Japan s coffee craze from the turn of the twentieth century, when Japan helped to launch the Brazilian coffee industry, to the present day, as uniquely Japanese ways with coffee surface in Europe and America. White s book takes up themes as diverse as gender, privacy, perfectionism, and urbanism. She shows how coffee and coffee spaces have been central to the formation of Japanese notions about the uses of public space, social change, modernity, and pleasure. White describes how the cafe in Japan, from its start in 1888, has been a place to encounter new ideas and experiments in thought, behavior, sexuality, dress, and taste. It is where a person can be socially, artistically, or philosophically engaged or politically vocal. It is also, importantly, an urban oasis, where one can be private in public.

Critique: "Required reading for coffee's true believers and industry insiders." -- Oliver Strand T: The New York Times Style Magazine 20121214 "You'll find your eyes opened beyond the new and storied cafes you've heard of and into regional corners and paradoxical tastes." Serious Eats 20120829 "A fascinating 130-year illumination of Japan's deeply rooted sipping culture." LA Weekly 20121018 "This excellent book combines academic rigour with lively descriptions and compelling prose." Times Higher Education 20120726 "Provides an engaging and often personal account of Japanese coffeehouses... Highly recommended." -- R. R. Wilk, Indiana University Choice 20121201 "Merry White has whiled away many hours in cafes in Japan in her professional role as an anthropologist, and wishes to communicate the diversity and intimacy one can experience in them." Times Literary Supplement (TLS) 20121123 "Perhaps this isn't really a review, more a recommendation - all I can really say is that I enjoyed it, and ... you'll probably enjoy this too." Jimseven 20120901 "This book will certainly give you ... a lot of new knowledge and maybe a whole new perspective on Japanese culture." Yum 20121101 "Coffee Life in Japan provides a novel and significant study on contemporary Japanese life." -- Willa Zhen, Culinary Institute of America Journal Of American-East Asian Relations 20130409 "Wake up to the world of Coffee Life in Japan, a book brimming with surprising tidbits, astute observations, and stories from the heart... If you're a [coffee maniac], clearly Coffee Life in Japan is the must-have book for you." -- Kate Heyhoe Caffeine and You 20130504
