This acclaimed and widely-used text offers students an in-depth appraisal of Japan's much scrutinized, but often misunderstood society and the tools to understand it. The new fourth edition brings its coverage up to date through 2003. The basic organizational framework remains the same, but the entire text has been overhauled to include new and updated information and delete material that has become dated, especially in the areas of politics, economics, and foreign policy. Recent publications on Japan are included, the bibliography has also been revised and updated, and recent election results are included in the appendix as appropriate.
