Rethinking the Constitution: An Anthology of Japanese Opinion
Japan Research Incorporated, 2006 - Political Science - 231 pages
Japanese opinion is sharply divided on the question of Constitutional reform -- not just between left and right but all over the spectrum. With essays from dozens of authors, this anthology gives voice to the full mosaic -- not in legalisms but in from-the-heart commentaries that will open new horizons and bring the issues alive for everyone interested in Japan's political future.
