The Abe Experiment and the Future of Japan: Don’t Repeat History
Author: Banno, Junji; Yamaguchi, Jiro; Translator: Stockwin, Arthur;
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 challenging and prompts serious reflection by anyone concerned with the future of Japan.

The Abe Experiment and the Future of Japan records a wide-ranging dialogue between two eminent Japanese scholars – Banno a political historian and Yamaguchi a political scientist, - regarding Japan’s modern political history, with particular emphasis on what they perceive as disturbing parallels between the 1930s and the recent policy trajectory, in which relations with Japan’s immediate neighbours have seriously deteriorated.
