About This Book

Lawrence Ward Beer (b. 1932) has been a close observer of Asian linkages among law, politics, culture, and national security issues over fifty years. His perspectives have been refined during long residence in Asia, especially Japan, by substantial friendly interactions with Asian legal scholars, judges, and attorneys involved in the world of human rights constitutional law. This volume brings together a selection of Lawrence W. Beer's many works previously published in diverse venues, but no longer easily accessible. The collection opens with a review of constitutionalism in Asia, and the United States and concludes with a recent examination of Japan's rejection of war: "Japan's Constitutional Discourse and Performance". By way of Afterword, the author offers an in-depth review of "Globalization of Human Rights in the 21st Century".
