SUMMARY

LIFE IN RIVERFRONT is a unique case study that offers a fresh approach to ethnography because it looks at American culture as seen through the eyes of Japanese anthropologists. Every cultural anthropology student is introduced to papers on the ?Nacirema,? a very foreign culture with many daily rituals and a fanaticism for cleanliness, especially as they prepare themselves for work in the morning. In truth, the ?nacirema? is American (spelled backwards), and the lessons learned from seeing one's own culture through the eyes of a ?stranger? illuminate the notion of ethnocentrism in a powerful way. While a major task of anthropology is to make the strange familiar and the exotic or enigmatic understandable, another task is to make the familiar strange so that one can see one's own culture in a new light. This case study accomplishes this and more.Sano, Mariko Fujita is the author of 'Life in Riverfront A Middle-Western Town Seen Through Japanese Eyes', published 2000 under ISBN 9780155064218 and ISBN 0155064215.
