Introduction to Japanese Politics, now in its fully updated sixth edition, is a comprehensive and current review of political and public policy develo pments in Japan. Since the previous edition, Japan's economic policy has un dergone significant change with a prolonged period of deflation having alte red the dynamics of the Japanese economy.

Japan Thrice-Opened: An Analysis of Relations Between Japan and the United States (Gerontology; 15), Ibe, Hideo
4 Ibe, Hideo Japan Thrice-Opened: An Analysis of Relations Between Japan and the United States (Gerontology; 15)
Praeger 1992 0275931781 / 9780275931780 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. A history of Japan-United States relations from the point of view of a pro- American Japanese scholar, this work is designed to serve as an analysis of the current situation--the third opening of Japan to the West in the last century. The two earlier openings failed when Japan adopted the policy of s onno-joi (which means literally revere the emperor and expel the foreigners ). This book is written to try to forestall the very real possibility of a recurrence of sonno-joi: as a reaction to the current opening by appealing to both the Japanese and the Americans to understand Japanese history and J apanese sensibilities. Japan and the United States share many interests and goals, but they suffer from a tremendous gap in mutual perceptions. Ibe makes an attempt here to explain the Japanese and their view of the world to a non-Japanese audience. He believes Japan is not an inexplicable riddle nor a monolith Japan, Inc. He argues that since time immemorial, forging unity among the many warring groups in Japan has been difficult, whether uniting the warlord clans of the ancient period, the feudalistic domains of premodern times, the political factions of the modernizing period, or the private corporations or government ministries of today. Ibe examines the difficulties the Japanese have encountered in their efforts to unify and to articulate their desires--which is not well understood by non-Japanese. This book is ideal for students, scholars, and the informed citizen interested in Japan

Cultural Norms and National Security: Police and Military in Postwar Japan (Cornell Studies in Political Economy), Katzenstein, Peter J.
10 Katzenstein, Peter J. Cultural Norms and National Security: Police and Military in Postwar Japan (Cornell Studies in Political Economy)
Cornell University Press 1998 0801483328 / 9780801483325 Paperback Near Fine 
Nonviolent state behavior in Japan, this book argues, results from the dist inctive breadth with which the Japanese define security policy, making it i nseparable from the quest for social stability through economic growth. Whi le much of the literature on contemporary Japan has resisted emphasis on cu ltural uniqueness, Peter J. Katzenstein seeks to explain particular aspects of Japan's security policy in terms of legal and social norms that are col lective, institutionalized, and sometimes the source of intense political c onflict and change. Culture, thus specified, is amenable to empirical analy sis, suggesting comparisons across policy domains and with other countries. Katzenstein focuses on the traditional core agencies of law enforcement an d national defense. The police and the military in postwar Japan are, he fi nds, reluctant to deploy physical violence to enforce state security. Polic e agents rarely use repression against domestic opponents of the state, and the Japanese public continues to support, by large majorities, constitutio nal limits on overseas deployment of the military. Katzenstein traces the r elationship between the United States and Japan since 1945 and then compare s Japan with postwar Germany. He concludes by suggesting that while we may think of Japan's security policy as highly unusual, it is the definition of security used in the United States that is, in international terms, except ional.

12 Maslow, Sebastian Risk State: Japan's Foreign Policy in an Age of Uncertainty (Rethinking Asi a and International Relations)
Routledge 2016 1472417135 / 9781472417138 Hardcover Very Good 
The increase of new complex security challenges and the heightening signifi cance of a diverse array of actors has simultaneously posed a challenge to traditional perspectives on international relations and foreign policy and created an opportunity for new concepts to be applied. Conventional explana tions of Japan's foreign policy have provided us with theoretically predete rmined understandings and fallacious predictions. Reformulating risk in its application to the study of international relations and foreign policy, th is volume promises new insights into the analysis of contemporary foreign p olicy in East Asia and Japan's post-Cold War international relations in par ticular.

Cooperation over Conflict: The Women's Movement and the State in Postwar Ja pan, Murase, Miriam
13 Murase, Miriam Cooperation over Conflict: The Women's Movement and the State in Postwar Ja pan
Routledge 2012 0415804930 / 9780415804936 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Japan's postwar transformation has been hailed as nothing short of a miracl e. Yet, in the midst of massive social, economic, political, and cultural c hange, gender inequality persists at remarkably high levels. The paradox of Japan's progress against the persistence of gender inequality raises the q uestion of why women remain a half-step behind men, more than a half centur y after women were granted equal rights under the postwar constitution. This question has been studied from a variety of perspectives. Anthropologists observe gender roles in Japanese culture, while economists study labor market conditions in Japan. This book offers a political perspective, and analyzes gender inequality in terms of power - specifically the power, or lack of power, that women themselves may exercise to create social change. Through the examination of women's groups, women's centers, and women's policy, this book documents state intervention in the women's movement in Japan. This intervention takes the form of regulations that limit the independence of women's organizations, as well as resources that aid and influence their activities. The result is a relationship between women and the state that is more cooperative than conflictual, leading to a slow and incremental process of social change for women in Japan.

18 Zielenziger, Michael Shutting Out the Sun: How Japan Created Its Own Lost Generation
Vintage 2007 1400077796 / 9781400077793 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. The world's second-wealthiest country, Japan once seemed poised to overtake America as the leading global economic powerhouse. But the country failed to recover from the staggering economic collapse of the early 1990s. Today it confronts an array of disturbing social trends, notably a population of more than one million hikikomori: the young men who shut themselves in thei r rooms, withdrawing from society. There is also a growing numbers of "para site singles": single women who refuse to leave home, marry, or bear childr en. In this trenchant investigation, Michael Zielenziger argues that Japan's tradition-steeped society, its aversion to change, and its distrust of individuality are stifling economic revival, political reform, and social evolution. Shutting Out the Sun is a bold explanation of Japan's stagnation and its implications for the rest of the world.
