This unique and comprehensive study provides the English-speaking reader with the opportunity to hear what some of Japan's leading social scientists and other commentators have to say about the internationalization of their country and its impact overseas. As the global community's demands on Japan call for a greater Japanese contribution to international society and for changes in Japan to facilitate foreign access, the topic of internationalization takes on even greater significance.

The contributors examine internationalization from a variety of perspectives, and place it into its political, economic and social contexts. Topics of special interest include the internationalization of Japanese capital, the response of Japanese society to foreign workers, local level initiatives, and the internationalization of education. In addition to the group of highly regarded Japanese scholars who have contributed to this volume, two leading political scientists from the United States and Britain discuss the experience of Japan as it compares to their countries of origin.

The Internationalisationof Japanwill appeal to students and scholars of Japanese affairs, and to political scientists and specialists in international affairs who are interested in the rise and fall of great powers.
