About the Author

Ian Neary is Professor of the Politics of Japan and Fellow of the Nissan Institute and St Antony's College, University of Oxford.


'Ian Neary's The State and Politics in Japan is a fantastic classroom resource. Well written and wide-ranging, this expanded and updated second edition is the perfect introduction to Japanese politics for students new to the subject.'
Hugo Dobson, University of Sheffield

'The best single text for contemporary Japanese politics. Elegantly written and packed with engaging detail, the book combines thorough historical context, a clear narrative of post-war political developments, and a comprehensive overview of Japan's formal and informal political institutions and actors. Careful analysis of key policy issues gives plenty of valuable material for discussion.'
Henry Laurence, Bowdoin College
