Japanese Foreign Policy and Understanding Japanese Politics
Known internationally for his research, writings and commentaries on the politics of modern and contemporary Japan, this two-volume work brings together much of his considerable archive of published as well as unpublished research over the past fifty years, some dating back to his early years as a scholar in the 1960s at ANU’s Department of Political Science. Structured thematically, Volume I comprises Part I: Japanese Foreign Policy; Part II: Australia-Japan Relations; Part III: Democracy in Japan and Asia; Volume II comprises Part I: Understanding Japanese Politics; Part II: Teaching and Research in Japanese Studies. Volume II complements his earlier Collected Writings which focuses specifically on the politics and political environment of Japan up to the date of publication (2004). J.A.A. Stockwin has also been a lead reviewer of new publications in his field; a list of his principal reviews together with a bibliography of his complete output can be found at the back of Volume II of this work. Both volumes are separately indexed.
