"Chris Hughes's unprecedented analysis of Japan's 'comprehensive security' policies provides an integrated, systematic approach to the linked military, economic, and environmental security policies of Asia's most important state.... It is extraordinarily deep and rich in the details it provides on all aspects of Japan's policies, their causes and implications. Simply, it is a tour de force." - Ellis S. Krauss; "An intellectually stimulating and very well researched piece of work..... This is a thorough and accessible contribution to the literature on Japan's foreign and security policy." - Jurgen Haacke"
