This source, whose authors are an American anthropologist and a
Japanese psychologist, compares the status and roles of the sexes, within the
context of the family, in two communities, one in Aichi Prefecture and the other
in Okayama Prefecture. Apart from brief sketches of historical background
bearing on customary attitudes in the two locations, the data consist of
compared results of Thematic Apperception Tests (TAT) administrated by the
authors. The themes developed in this report are: attitudes concerning
family-arranged marriages, heterosexual relationships in general, aggression in
different roles, and mother-in-law.
