About this book

In this volume the contributors argue that the events of 9-11 and the subsequent "war on terrorism" have had big implications for Japan. These events have called into question the assumptions and limits of Japan's war-renouncing constitution.

Reviews

"The portrait presented of Japanese political opinion and communication manifests considerable diversity" - Pacific Affairs

"This volume uses comprehensive polling data and media content analysis to demonstrate the shift in Japanese public opinion from broad pacifism to defensive realism over the past decade. The authors offer a nuanced assessment of both the strategic significance of that change and the continued constraints on Japan s military role." - Michael J. Green, Associate Professor, Department of International Relations, and Japan Chair, CSIS, Georgetown University; author of Japan s Reluctant Realism (2000).
