"ボディ・スタディーズ" (Bodi sutadīzu) a translation of Body Studies: An Introduction, was published by Kōyōshobō Press in May 2017 in Japan.
"This book investigates how power plays an important role in the uses, views, and shapes of the body―as well as how the body is invested with meaning. Body Studies provides a wealth of pedagogic features for ease of teaching and learning: ethnographic case studies, boxes covering contemporary controversies, news stories, and legislative issues, as well as chapter summaries, further reading recommendations, and key terms."
This book, now assigned in many social science courses in Japan, surveys the cultural and social meanings of the body in the United States and beyond. Kuni translated the Preface, “Fat and Thin Bodies" (chapter 10), and "Commodified Bodies" (chapter 15) under the supervision of Hiromi Tanaka at Meiji University.
