520    This manuscript provides a window into the Japanese 
       nighttime bars where male hosts seduce their female 
       clients and entice them to spend money. It attempts to 
       answer questions such as: what happens when women are the 
       financial providers and men are the paid seducers? How do 
       they communicate when women want to be seduced but cannot 
       say so? What is it like to be in a commodified form of 
       romance? Takeyama investigates various aspects of the host
       clubs including the host club as workplace, the hosts 
       themselves, the women who frequent host clubs, the club 
       managers, and the ethics of host club deception. 
       Ultimately, the book provides readers with an 
       extraordinary look into the dynamics of seduction, and the
       broader dynamics of the contemporary Japanese political 
       economy.|cPublisher's description
