This is the second of three volumes that constitute a brilliant, state-of-t he-art analysis of Japan's phenomenal economic rise, its society, and its p lace in contemporary world affairs. The papers in these volumes are future- orientated - they raise questions about wher Japan is going as it approache s the twenty-first century and offer insights, albeit speculative, about fu ture trends, prospects, and problems. The present volume consists of 14 ess ays by leading Japanese and American political scientists and economists wh o analyze the interaction of the Japanese political economy with the increa singly volatile international system. The essays come to grips with several key questions: has the world entered an unstable era of power transition? In what ways is the international system changing? What is Japan's impact o n the international system, and in what ways, in turn, is Japan's political economy being shaped by the international environment? Will Japan continue to generate conflicts with other countries as a by-product of its economic performance and its aggressive export and foreign investment orientation? How different is Japan's political economy from those of the United States and Western Eurpe, and are the differences diminishing? Are Japanese policy -making institutions capable of adjusting to increased international pressu res to change Japan's foreign and economic policies? Can national differenc es be accommodated within the international system without giving certain c ountries (like Japan) 'unfair' advantages?
