Japan Rearmed: The Politics of Military Power
Over the past decades, the Japanese military has quietly grown into one of the most formidable forces in the world, yet it struggles to use its hard power as an instrument of national policy. As America's commitment to the Pacific wavers, Japanese leaders are beginning to rethink their own commitment to the renouncement of offensive military force in Japan’s postwar constitution. Meanwhile, North Korea continues to retain and expand its nuclear weapons and missiles programs. Against this backdrop, China and South Korea remain wary of any military ambitions Japan may entertain. What does a strong Japanese military mean for the Pacific region and how does this impact the politics of military power in China and Japan? In this program, Sheila Smith, one of the world’s foremost experts on Japan and East Asia, discusses her newest book, Japan Rearmed: The Politics of Military Power.
Speaker:
