The logic of Japanese politics leaders, institutions, and the limits of change by Gerald L Curtis ( )
11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gerald Curtis has personally known most of the key players in Japanese politics for more than thirty years, and he draws on their candid comments to provide invaluable and graphic insights into the world of Japanese politics. By relating the behavior of Japanese political leaders to the institutions within which they must operate, Curbs makes sense out of what others have regarded as enigmatic or illogical." "Curtis rejects the notion that cultural distinctiveness and consensus are the defining elements of Japan's political decision making emphasizing instead the competition among and the profound influence of individuals operating within particular institutional contexts on the development of Japan's politics." "Scrutinizing and interpreting a complex and changing political system, this multi-layered chronicle reveals the dynamics of democracy at work - Japanese-style."--BOOK JACKET

Election campaigning, Japanese style by Gerald L Curtis ( Book )
14 editions published between 1971 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Running for public office in postwar Japan requires the endorsement of a political party and a sophisticated system of organizational support. In this volume, Gerald L. Curtis provides a detailed case study of the campaign of Sato Bunsei, who in 1967 ran for the Lower House of Japan's parliament as a nonincumbent candidate of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party. Sato's district consisted of a modern urban center and a tradition-bound rural hinterland and featured a dynamic dialectic between old and new patterns of electioneering, which led Sat? to innovate new strategies and techniques. Since its publication in 1971, sociologists and anthropologists as well as political scientists have considered Curtis's microanalysis of Japan's political system to be a vital historical document, offering insights into Japanese social behavior and political organization that are still relevant. The Japanese edition of Curtis's pioneering study, Daigishi No Tanjo, a best-seller, is valued today as a classic and read and cited by journalists, politicians, and scholars alike. This new edition features an introduction in which the author reflects on the reception of his book and on the changes in Japan's election process since its publication."-Book cover
The United States, Japan, and Asia by American assembly ( Book )
6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The robust growth of Asian economies and the end of the Cold War have radically changed the economic and security relationships that have bound the United States and Japan since the end of World War II. The Japanese are building a dominant position in the Asia Pacific economy, while the United States is reducing its military presence and asking whether it can compete with Japan economically in the region. China's growing economic and military strength adds new challenges for both countries. What should the new U.S. policy in Asia be? What role will Japan take in regional security? Can the two countries' economic relations in the region be mutually beneficial, or will Japan's reduced need for U.S. Military protection put the two nations on a collision course? In this timely collection of original essays, sponsored by the American Assembly, some of America's leading Asian experts offer answers to these important questions. The contributors' examination of U.S.-Japan relations fills an important need by paying special attention to the broader context of change in the Asia-Pacific region

Getting the triangle straight : managing China-Japan-US relations ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As the balance of power in Asia shifts, relations among China, Japan, and the United States are becoming increasingly important for the future of the region as well as for the rest of the world. Trilateral relationships tend to be unstable, but the dynamics of China-Japan-US relations are further complicated by historical enmities, differing systems of governance, competition in the economic and security realms, and growing interdependence. While most studies of these countries focus on their bilateral ties, Getting the Triangle Straight turns its attention to the ways in which they relate to one another in a trilateral context. In this volume, three leading experts from China, Japan, and the United States are joined by nine younger, emerging scholars to analyze the relationship and offer recommendations for better managing the volatile dynamics of trilateral relations
