Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book will excite readers interested in material culture, gender and socioeconomic change. . . . A brilliant portrait of modernizing Japan."--M. William Steele/International Christian University"Social Science Japan Jrnl" (01/22/2013)

"Gordon asks questions and draws connections that less ambitious studies of business or society alone cannot achieve . . . [he] reinvigorates the history of the sewing machine and suggests that there is much more to learn about this extremely significant piece of household technology."--Anna Johns"H-Net" (12/01/2014)

The book will excite readers interested in material culture, gender and socioeconomic change. . . . A brilliant portrait of modernizing Japan. --M. William Steele/International Christian University"Social Science Japan Jrnl" (01/22/2013)"
