A noted political scientist is the author of this introduction to post-World War II Japanese politics - a subject the outsider often finds opaque. The present format of Japan's politics is set into its national historical context and related to more recent international perceptions. Japanese national identity and the country's changing international roles are discussed along with accounts of one-party dominance and the internal political pressures of recent years. With tabulated data, bibliography and index.
