Deviance and inequality in Japan: Japanese youth and foreign migrants

Robert Stuart Yoder


Japanese youth and foreign migrants face stringent institutionalised controls in Japan. This book questions the efficacy of such social controls, focusing on the interrelation of inequality (powerlessness, discriminate controls and class inequality) and deviance (largely derived from power and the violation of informal and formal norms). It provides a detailed description and explanation of inequality and deviance of Japanese youth and seventeen foreign migrant groups.

Keywords: Japan, Japanese youth, foreign migrants, social controls, inequality, deviance
