When this prize-winning (Suntory Best Non-fiction 2010) history of the music known as Enka, one of the dominant forms of postwar popular music, appeared, it rearranged everyone's understanding of the history of postwar pop. Love it or hate it, Enka is a necessary background for anyone hoping to understand the music of Japan. With a new introduction by the author, an index, and full color printing (unlike the Japanese original), this is a must-have for your collection.
