Ebook description:

Tropics of Savagery is an incisive and provocative examine of the figures and tropes of “savagery” in Japanese colonial tradition. Through a rigorous evaluation of literary works, ethnographic research, and a range of different discourses, Robert Thomas Tierney demonstrates how imperial Japan constructed its personal identification in relation each to the West and to the folks it colonized. By analyzing the representations of Taiwanese aborigines and indigenous Micronesians in the works of distinguished writers, he reveals that the trope of the savage underwent a number of metamorphoses over the course of Japan’s colonial period–violent headhunter to be subjugated, ethnographic different to be studied, completely happy primitive to be exoticized, and hybrid colonial topic to be assimilated.
