The establishment of the Japanese constitutional system by Junji Banno( Book )

25 editions published between 1971 and 1995 in English and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When it was first published in Japan, The Establishment of the Japanese Constitutional System was immediately recognised by modern Japanese historians as a work of acute and original analysis. Based largely on contemporary documents, diaries and letters, it provides an invaluable background to understanding the nature of relations between parliament, bureaucrats and leaders of political cliques in Japan, relations which persist to this day."--BOOK JACKET. "The Establishment of the Japanese Constitutional System is an authoritative account of the establishment of constitutional government in Japan during the turbulent decade of the 1890s. An intensely 'political' story, full of power struggles and the clash of interests, it tells how political experience was accumulated by government leaders and party politicians in these formative years."--BOOK JACKET. "Between 1868 and 1890 the Meiji government wielded despotic power, and was able to pursue its military and industrial policies virtually unchallenged. After the Diet was established, however, the government found its policies challenged by the 'popular parties' which demanded that government expenditure and the burden of tax on farmers be decreased. Junji Banno shows how, unexpectedly, the popular parties discovered in the constitution the means of challenging the government and, although unable to win power themselves, they found they were well able to force a stalemate. By 1900, however, one of the popular parties had given up its demand for tax reduction and begun to support the government policy of industrialisation, while one faction of the government had changed its attitude towards the popular parties."--BOOK JACKET. "The author describes how these two factions from different sides of the political divide came together to form Rikken Seiyukai--a pragmatic political party--and explains why such a drastic change in basic attitudes took place during the first decade of Japanese parliamentary politics."--Jacket

The Japanese informal empire in China, 1895-1937 by Peter Duus( )

7 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Building upon a previous study of Japan's colonial empire, this volume examines the period from 1895 to 1937 when Japan's economic, social, political, and military influence in China expanded so rapidly that it supplanted the influence of Western powers competing there. These fourteen essays discuss how Japan's "informal empire" emerged in China and how that "empire" influenced Japan's own internal development. "Describes in rich detail Japan's organization of a wide range of cultural, educational, economic, military, and bureaucratic institutions that formed the mainstays of Japanese influence in China along with the trading, manufacturing, intelligence-gathering, and political intriguing which they managed."--Wen-hsin Yeh, The Journal of Asian StudiesOriginally published in 1991.

Japan's modern history, 1857-1937 : a new political narrative by Junji Banno( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the course of the period 1857 to 1937 in Japan, six distinct stages can be identified as the country moved from Shogun rule and its subsequent overthrow, from industrialisation and investment to the Meiji Constitution and then from Taisha democracy to Showa fascism. In this book, Junji Banno stresses the mutual relationships between each period, and to this end renames then accordingly: the age of reform; age of revolution; age of construction; age of management; age of reorganisation; and age of crisis. Following this model, the book covers eighty years of history in Japan, focusing on political history and foreign relations, with extensive material also on economic development and foreign influences on political institutions and practices. Based on extensive archival research, Japan's Modern History considers synoptically the key trends and their significance over the period of 1857 to 1937. In turn, it presents in detail fascinating information on many of the main leaders and other significant figures, with extensive quotations from their writings, letters and diaries. This book is a translation into English of a major work of scholarship by a leading historian of modern Japan, and may be considered the apex of Junji Banno's work in the field. As such, it will be of great interest to students and scholars of both Japanese history and history more broadly"--
Democracy in pre-war Japan : concepts of government, 1871-1937 : collected essays by Junji Banno( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Supported by much new, or previously neglected, material, Democracy in Pre-War Japan depicts a tortuous battle of ideas, with many odd contradictions, sudden shifts and humiliating retreats. It focuses on key points of difference between leading thinkers and explores their motivation, as shaped by contemporary events. This volume is a key resource for all those interested in Japanese history, political ideas and rival concepts of government."--Jacket
The Abe experiment and the future of Japan : don't repeat history by Junji Banno( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With an author's foreword written on the day that the Abe cabinet decided to 'revise the Japanese Constitution by reinterpretation' (Tuesday, 1 July 2014), this timely examination of Japan's post-war history by two leading historians committed to democratic politics is highly instructive and prompts serious reflection by anyone concerned with the future of Japan."--Dust jacket
The political economy of Japanese society by Junji Banno( )

19 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until recently, many Japanese believed that they lived in the richest country in the world, and in the early 1990s, they welcomed the end of one-party dominance. However, by the middle of the 1990s, many Japanese are no longer confident in their economy, nor optimistic in their politics. This authoritative study analyses various aspects of Japanese society and economy in order to provide a balanced view between the optimism of the 1980s and the pessimism characteristic of more recent years. The Political Economy of Japanese Society is a revision and translation of a multidisciplinary research
