This volume takes a comparative approach to Japanese politics, covering topics such as political parties and elections, civil society, bureaucracy, and foreign relations. Grounded in a discussion of democracy's historical development since the Meiji period, each chapter encourages readers to think critically and comparatively about political processes and their outcomes, situating Japan regionally and as a wealthy, democratic nation. The goal is to offer students of government insight into how democracy works--and doesn't, for that matter--and can illustrate the fact that strengthening democratic institutions is an ongoing struggle throughout much of the world, including Japan.
