Critical Issues in Contemporary Japan. In this book Jeff Kingston has amassed a collection of essays that goes beyond labels such as ‘nationalistic’ or ‘insular’ to examine and discuss the international and domestic challenges that confront the country today. Go back to Australian Outlook. Written by experts with a range of backgrounds, the essays are divided into five broad sections. Addressing the political sphere, scholars such as Aurelia George Mulgan introduce the debates and developments surrounding Japan’s trade policy, judicial system, political parties, civil society and the media.

Kingston's Contemporary Japan has been a useful overview of Japanese society, so I had high hopes for this collection of essays. Unfortunately, it is a mixed bag. While there is only one total dud (a TPP cheerleading piece straight out of the USTR press office), there are a few common problems: too wide-ranging topics in too little space or an excess of optimism.

This book provides undergraduate and graduate students with an interdisciplinary compendium written by a number of leading specialists on contemporary Japan. Chapters reflect the standards of rigorous scholarly work, but also exceed them in their accessibility of language and engagement with concerns relevant to non-specialists. The probing analysis of key debates and issues confronting Japan make this ideal for college courses and an essential reference work on Japan/Asia for libraries.

This book encompasses a range of disciplines in the social sciences and thus will be useful for a variety of courses including Comparative Politics, Media Studies, Anthropology, Sociology, Asian Studies, International Relations, Public Policy, Healthcare, Education, Judicial Reform, Gender and Minority Studies. The strength of this volume is in the collective efforts of accomplished experts providing in-depth analysis and up-to-date comprehensive coverage of Japan in the 21st century. Students will gain the analytical insights and information necessary to assess the challenges that confront the Japanese people, policymakers and private and public sector institutions.
