Rethinking Japan'S Identity And International Role (eBook)
Tradition And Change In Japan'S Foreign Policy
de Susanne Klien
Sobre o livro
This paper presents a study of Japan's international role with a special focus on its historical evolution. To that end, the following three pillars lay the necessary theoretical foundations: one, the notions of historical and political identity and a discussion of the ambivalent shapes they have taken in Japan; two, the regional context, an examination of Japan's situation with respect to Asian history as a whole, and finally, the "e;civilian power"e; concept as defined by Hanns W. Maull.
