Illness and Culture in Contemporary Japan was her first book on the Japanese among whom she found cultural germs and a profusion of urban magic. This helped her to realize the limitations of only studying a people and their way of life at a particular point in time. Ohnuki-Tierney has been working on the question of power of symbols and its absence in political spaces since the mid-1980s. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press.

Emiko Ohnuki-Tierneys book is a significant exception in that it attempts to relate the various cognitive, sensory and emotive factors. Ohnuki-Tiemey then takes up a discussion of the metaphysical illnesses indicating that among the Ainu they are identified by causal agents in the supernatural world rather than by appearance. Thus the manner of perception is instrumental in later classification. A most im portant factor for understanding Ainu ethnomedicine, however, is the presence of those unclassifiable elements or anomalous symbols which figure so prominently in the sacred: profane opposition of the Ainu world view. 1980b Illness and Healing among the Sakhalin Ainu - A Symbolic Interpretation.

by Emiko Ohnuki-Tierney.

This book describes the views of the Ainu of Sakhalin island, northern Japan, concerning illness and medicine. It discusses these issues as parts of the highly complex universe of the Ainu in which deities, demons and human beings form three major constitutes. Ohnuki-Tierney, Emiko.

Originally published in 1981, this book explores the issue of how a society understands human illness in the absence of a germ theory. This is done through an interpretation of the illness categories and healing practices of the Sakhalin Ainu, a hunting and gathering people resettled in Japan. The text illustrates how illnesses relate to the Ainu view of the universe and how their medical system is intimately interwoven with their moral cosmology and social networks. Even such minor ailments as headaches and boils are meticulously classified to mirror the classifications of such basic perceptual structures as space and time. With the Ainu medical system as an example, this book probes questions central to research in symbolic, medical and linguistic anthropology, structuralism, and the anthropology of women.
