Nitta 2001; 'Snow Brand to Shut Suspect Osaka Plant', Mainichi Daily News [Online], 24 December 2000.

See Nottage 2000a; and PL Law Case No. 27, Appendix C.

'Recalling the Summer of Eating Dangerously', Mainichi Daily News [Online], 27 August 2000. The same phrase was used in 'Food Industry Cooks Its Goose', Mainichi Daily News [Online], 20 August 2000. It is a play on words relating to the 1982 movie set in Indonesia, 'The Year of Living Dangerously, starring Mel Gibson (who moved from the US to Sydney when he was 12: ).

Cf. e.g. Ian O'Donnell, 'Interpreting Crime Trends', Irish Criminal Law Journal 12:1, 10-16 (2002). In Japan, Gordon (2003:324-5) notes that although recent killings by juveniles have attracted huge media attention, violent crimes by youths were greater in the 1950s and 1960s. On some other problems in assembling and interpreting crime statistics for Japan, see e.g. Finch 2000. See also briefly Pharr (2000), on burgeoning reports of corruption and other scandals involving politicians.
