Japan's Contested Constitution: Documents and Analysis

Synopsis

This book makes available in English the four key proposals on constitutional reform in Japan. These proposals form the backdrop against which the constitutional debate will evolve. The authors place these documents in their historical and contemporary context, providing an analysis of their meaning in the development of post-war thinking on the Japanese constitution.

Excerpt

The convention in Japan is for the family name to be followed by the given name. This convention is followed for all Japanese persons referred to in the text and for works published in Japanese. Those published in English appear in the same order as the original. With the exception of the place names Tokyo, Kyoto and Kitakyushu, macrons are used to indicate a long vowel, as in Satō, except in the case of Japanese authors whose work is published in English. Since some Japanese authors now publish under their names in the Japanese order, and others use the Western order, confusion may be resolved by reference to the index.
