About this book

This edited volume puts forth a theoretically and empirically rigorous analysis of Japanese foreign policy. Nine case studies on Japan's security, economic, and environmental policies in this volume examine how norms do or do not guide Japanese foreign policy and how they interact with interests and power.

Reviews

"The book is a welcome, rigorously researched, and thought-provoking contribution to the study of a Japanese foreign policy in transition. . . The editors, Yoichiro Sato and Keiko Hirata, have recruited an excellent cast of characters to analyze clusters of cases dealing with security, international political economy, and environmental issues." - The Journal of Japanese Studies

"This is one of those rare collections in which all of the contributors are both fully conversant in the broader theoretical concerns of their discipline and deeply familiar with the details and specifics of the cases they write about. The cases studies and the theoretical issue that they take up are central to the understanding of contemporary Japanese foreign policy. The book is a major contribution to the field." - Lonny Carlile, Asian Studies, University of Hawaii at Manoa

"Professors Sato and Hirata have assembled an impressive work that applies the cutting edge of International Relations theory to the case study of Japan. A worthwhile read for both International Relations theorists as well as Japan scholars." - Kevin Cooney,author of Japan's Foreign Policy Since 1945
