Constructing Subjectivities discusses some of the major autobiographies that appeared in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Japan. Tomonari connects their emergence to the social transformation taking place at the time: the modernization and industrialization of Japan. Focusing on particular groups such as wealthy peasants, newly emerging businessmen, social activists, and feminist intellectuals, Tomonari positions the autobiographies as part of the social reform their authors were trying to carry out.
