The Routledge Handbook of Japanese Politicsis an advanced level

reference guide which surveys the current state of Japanese politics,

featuring both traditional topics and cutting edge research. The volume

is divided into five sections covering:

  • domestic politics
  • civil society
  • social policy
  • political economy
  • and international relations/security

The first four sections begin with an overview chapter that provides

historical background information on the section’s overarching topic.

The chapters that follow explore more specific topics in the sub-area.

In the final section, historical background information is contained in

the individual chapters which cover the diverse areas of international

political economy, security and foreign policy.

 

Offering a complete overview of the full spectrum of Japanese politics,

the Handbook is an invaluable resource for academics, researchers,

policy analysts, graduate and undergraduate students studying this

ever-evolving field.
