About the Author

David E. Apter was Henry J. Heinz II Professor of Comparative Political and Social Development at Yale University. Nagayo Sawa, who studied at Harvard, works for the Japan-United States Friendship Commission in Japan.


[The authors] listen carefully to voices in the generation-long conflict... From these voices [they] skillfully create a narrative that is simultaneously a penetrating case study, a sophisticated but never obtrusive theory and a phenomenologically rich portrayal of the people involved... It is a rarity in the social sciences-a good read. * New York Times Book Review *
Apter, perhaps because he is an outsider, is one of the most acute observers of the political style of the Japanese. His interviews with the militants, explorations of their lives in the trenches (literally)...contain important insights, missed by most other observers, into the tensions and frustrations of Japanese democracy. * Journal of Asian Studies *
