520    Women's bodies contributed to the expansion of the 
       Japanese empire. With this bold opening, Noriko J. 
       Horiguchi sets out in Women Adrift to show how women's 
       actions and representations of women's bodies redrew the 
       border and expanded, rather than transcended, the empire 
       of Japan. Discussions of empire building in Japan 
       routinely employ the idea of kokutai-the national body-as 
       a way of conceptualizing Japan as a nation-state. Women 
       Adrift demonstrates how women impacted this notion, and 
       how women's actions affected perceptions of the national 
       body. Horiguchi broadens the debate over Japanese women's 
       agency by focusing on works that move between naichi, the 
       inner territory of the empire of Japan, and gaichi, the 
       outer territory; specifically, she analyzes the boundary-
       crossing writings of three prominent female authors: 
       Yosano Akiko (1878-1942), Tamura Toshiko (1884-1945), and 
       Hayashi Fumiko (1904-1951). In these examples-and in 
       Naruse Mikio's postwar film adaptations of Hayashi's work-
       Horiguchi reveals how these writers asserted their own 
       agency by transgressing the borders of nation and gender. 
       At the same time, we see how their work, conducted under 
       various colonial conditions, ended up reinforcing Japanese
       nationalism, racialism, and imperial expansion. In her 
       reappraisal of the paradoxical positions of these women 
       writers, Horiguchi complicates narratives of Japanese 
       empire and of women's role in its expansion
