In a world that can conceive Japanese workers only as men in suits with cell phones, this book offers a fascinating look at the other side the world of Japan's unskilled day laborers who live outside of the dominant institutions of modern Japanese culture: the family and the company. These men gather daily at urban labor markets to look for work, then sleep in nearby cheap lodging districts, or worse, on the streets huddled around bonfires. Gill (social sciences, U. of Tokyo) explores the egalitarian, libertarian lifestyle of these men, who live day-to-day but are shadowed by the knowledge that their lifestyle leads to exclusion from mainstream society, and usually homelessness and an early death on the streets.
