JAPANESE FOREIGN POLICY TODAY, edited by Inoguchi Takashi and Purnendra Jain. New York: Palgrave, 2000, 316 pp. $59.95 (cloth).

The book was conceived as a companion volume to a 1997 book edited by Inoguchi and Jain, “Japanese Politics Today: Beyond Karaoke Democracy?”, which surveyed recent developments in Japanese domestic politics, as the editors recognized the absence of a work in English that provided comprehensive coverage of the most important concerns of the country’s foreign policy.
