This book is about the many "discourses of discipline" around "corporal punishment" (taibatsu) in Japanese schools and sports. These discourses encompass the ways that people discuss discipline, the patterns of rhetoric about what discipline would be, and what discipline signifies. By scrutinizing these discourses we can disentangle the allegedly intimate connections among culture, discipline, and pedagogy in Japan. This anthropological study sheds light on the relationship of the education system and the economy and differences between Japan and other nations, as well as between classroom education and sports education.
