Book News Annotation:

Addresses the way langauge is used to express advertising slogans and other popular culture forms. Draws on theories from anthropology, linguistics, media studies, and semiotics to show how such cultural forms as noodle westerns and high school baseball uphold traditional Japanese values. Questions whether the nation is just acting out a part written for it by western civilization. Distributed in Anglo- America by St. Martins Press. Paper edition of the 1985 local bestseller dredging up the sordid details of self-serving on the hazy interface of Hawaii's public and private sector, from the mid-1950's to the mid-1980's, when the Democratic Party held full power. All drawn from public records.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
