Japan at the Crossroads: Conflict and Compromise after Anpo

Front Cover
Harvard University Press, Aug 6, 2018 - History - 336 pages
In 1960, when Japan revised the postwar treaty that allows a U.S. military presence in Japan, the popular backlash changed the evolution of Japan’s politics and culture, and its global role. Nick Kapur’s analysis helps resolve Japan’s essential paradox as being innovative yet regressive, flexible yet resistant, imaginative yet wedded to tradition.
