9780231130523: GEISHA - HARLOT - STRANGLER - STAR: A Woman, Sex, And Morality in  Modern Japan

In May 1936, Abe Sada committed the most notorious crime in twentieth-century Japan--the murder and emasculation of her lover. What made her do it? And why was she found guilty of murder yet sentenced to only six years in prison? Why have this woman and her crime remained so famous for so long, and what does her fame have to say about attitudes toward sex and sexuality in modern Japan? Despite Abe Sada's notoriety and the depictions of her in film and fiction (notably in the classic In the Realm of the Senses), until now, there have been no books written in English that examine her life and the forces that pushed her to commit the crime. Along with a detailed account of Sada's personal history, the events leading up to the murder, and its aftermath, this book contains transcripts of the police interrogations after her arrest--one of the few existing first-person records of a woman who worked in the Japanese sex industry during the 1920s and 1930s--as well as a memoir by the judge and police records. Geisha, Harlot, Strangler, Star steps beyond the simplistic view of Abe Sada as a sexual deviate or hysterical woman to reveal a survivor of rape, a career as a geisha and a prostitute, and a prison sentence for murder. Sada endured discrimination and hounding by paparazzi until her disappearance in 1970. Her story illustrates a historical collision of social and sexual values--those of the samurai class and imported from Victorian Europe against those of urban and rural Japanese peasants.

Descrizione libro Columbia University Press, 2004. Condizione libro: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The scandal of Abe Sada, Japan's most infamous female strangler, is the kernal of William Johnston's rich and fascinating story. Sada's lurid crime has been dramatized in story and film, but this book reaches behind the event to give us an understanding of the sexual mors of early twentieth century Japan. It is an eye-opening and deeply sympathetic account. Codice libro della libreria ABE_book_new_023113052X
