Japan's Contested Constitution: Documents and Analysis

£14.99

Product description

From the beginning of the year 2000, Constitutional Research Councils have been set up in both Houses of the National Diet and the structural and symbolic questions of national identity and purpose are merging in debate on constitutional reform. The Constitution defines the nature of the Japanese polity and constrains Japan's military role in the world. The opening of this debate should play a crucial role in shaping the nature of the realignment of domestic political forces and the alternative international roles Japan may pursue in the new era. This book makes available in English the four key proposals on constitutional reform already in the public domain in Japan. These proposals form the backdrop against which the constitutional debate will evolve. Hook and McCormack place these documents in their historical and contemporary context, providing an analysis of their meaning in the development of post-war thinking on the Constitution.

Condition: Covers shelfworn, scuffed and scratched; pages clean and clear and binding tight.
