"Struggles over differences are truly led by differences.
That is, while they are led by differences, they struggle over differences.
This book tries to interpret "leading" and "struggles" over differences."(Sentences Written on the Belly Band)

"This book is based on the activities of Life of Minority in Local Community: Sociological Study on Movement of Practice and Dynamics of Political Intervention, a project led by graduate students which has been conducted by the Global COE Ars Vivendi of Ritsumeikan University. The project has been continued since June 2009 till now, January 2012. One of its achievements is Dynamics of "Differences": Practical Challenges of Research and Methodology on Minority, which was published as our center report on November 20, 2010. In this book we try to "develop" this report."("Preface" p.vii)

"In this book we examine the reality over what we call 'minorities'. The reason we publish this book is to describe the world which has not been written / discussed enough in the area of 'minority studies'. This book is the first step to such thinking operation."("Introduction" p.1)

"Here we have no author who mobilizes 'minorities / the involved persons' for the conclusion of the theories of social security / social movements which have a deja vu. We have continued a process of trial and error so that we could establish a critical viewpoint which makes characteristics of each individual 'field' less privileged and keeps its dynamism."("Postface" p.295)
