This book investigates the numerous meanings of the 'human shape' in Japanese culture, from pre-history to the present, and explores the many, varied and subtle connotations ningyo have for the Japanese. It not only identifies and describes ningyo, detailing their history and meaning, but also contains a complex index and one of the most extensive bibliographies on the doll motif ever published in English.
