About this book

The 2012 election in Japan ejected the governing DPJ and returned the LDP overwhelmingly to power while brand new parties pulled in millions of voters. This book explains what happened, why it happened and what it means. International experts analyze the election results, parties strategies, gender issues, policy implications and more.

Reviews

The editors have assembled several distinguished political scientists to provide an exceptionally rigorous but highly readable account of the 2012 election and its implications. The coverage is comprehensive; the analysis incisive; the information revealing. A must for all who want to understand the direction in which Japanese politics is headed.
