Contested governance in Japan : sites and issues( )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,074 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contested Governance in Japan extends the analysis of governance in contemporary Japan by exploring both the sites and issues of governance above and below the state as well as within it. All contributors share a common perspective on governance as taking place in different sites of activity, and as involving a range of issues related to the norms and rules for the management, coordination and regulation of order, whether within Japan or on the regional or global levels. This volume discusses the contested nature of governance in Japan and the ways in which a range of actors is involved in different sites and issues of governance at home, in the region and the globe."--Jacket
Japan and Okinawa : structure and subjectivity by Glenn D Hook( )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 972 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japan and Okinawa provides an up-to-date, coherent and theoretically informed examination of Okinawa from the perspective of political economy and society. It combines a focus on structure and subjectivity as a way to analyze Okinawa, Okinawans and their relationship with global, regional and national structures. The book draws on a range of disciplines to provide new insights into both the contemporary and historical place of Okinawa and the Okinawans. The first half of the book examines Okinawa as part of the global, regional and national structures which impose constraints as well as offer opportunities to Okinawa. Leading specialists examine in detail topics such as Okinawa as a frontier region, Okinawa's Free Trade Zones and response to globalization, and Okinawa as part of the Japanese 'construction state', being particularly concerned with how Okinawa can chart its own course. The second half focuses on questions of identity and subjectivity, examining the multitude of vibrant cultural practices that breathe life into the meaning of being Okinawan and inform their social and political responses to structural constraints. The originality of this book can be found in its elucidation of how the structural constraints of Okinawa's precarious position in the world, the region and as part of Japan impact on subjectivity. For many Okinawans, in the past as now, acceptance and rationalization of their dependency has made them collaborators in their own subordination. At the same time, however, they have demonstrated a capacity to give voice to a separate identity, inscribing cultural practices marking them as different from mainland Japanese

Japan's contested Constitution : documents and analysis by Glenn D Hook( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the beginning of the year 2000, Constitutional Research Councils have been set up in both Houses of the National Diet in Japan. The constitution, adopted when Japan was defeated and occupied, defines the nature of the Japanese polity and constrains Japan's military role in the world. The opening of the debate on constitutional reform is set to play a crucial role in shaping the realignment of domestic political forces and defining the international roles Japan may pursue in the new millennium." "As the Constitutional Research Councils begin their deliberations, this timely book brings together for the first time, in English translation, four of the major proposals on constitutional reform. These are the proposals of the Yomiuri and Asahi newspaper groups, one of Japan's major publishing houses, Iwanami, and Ozawa Ichiro, president of the Liberal Party of Japan and a key player in Japanese politics. Hook and McCormack place these documents in their historical and contemporary context, providing a thorough analysis of their significance in the development of thought on the constitution." "Japan's Contested Constitution: Documents and Analysis presents extensive analysis of the evolution of constitutional government in Japan and examines differing interpretations of key clauses in the constitution. It is a resource for anyone with an interest in modern Japan, its politics, law and its international role."--Jacket

14 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent era has seen the emergence of a number of microregions. Be they formal arrangements like the growth triangles within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, or informal economic integration like that across the US-Mexican border, it is often below the national level that we find real regional integration taking place. Building on two previous Palgrave publications, Gamble and Payne's Regionalism and World Order and Hook and Kearns' Subregionalism and World Order, this volume provides a comprehensive assessment of a number of different case studies - wide ranging n terms of both geographical coverage and the types of microregionalism assessed

Regional risk and security in Japan : whither the everyday by Glenn D Hook( Book )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japan's unusual position in the realm of international politics encapsulates a three-fold juxtaposition: both in and out of Asia, both occupied by and a close ally of the United States, and both a key trade partner and a strategic rival of China. Whilst international relations theory offers a number of ways to analyse these relations, this book instead utilizes the concept of risk to provide an innovative perspective on Japan's relations with China, North Korea and the US. The book elucidates how risk, potential harm and harm are faced disproportionately by certain groups in society. This is de
