This is a systematic comparative examination of Japan's post World War II welfare policies. It is also a critical assessment of previous research, which the author finds has often exaggerated the uniqueness of Japan's social situation and public policy. The substantial and groundbreaking study addresses issues that face Japan and also every industrialised society. Index.
