Contemporary Japan: History, Politics and Social Change since the 1980s presents a comprehensive examination of the causes of the Japanese economic bubble in the late 1980s and the socio-political consequences of the recent financial collapse.

  • Represents the only book to examine in depth the turmoil of Japan since Emperor Hirohito died in 1989, the Cold War ended, and the economy collapsed

  • Provides an assessment of Japan's dramatic political revolution of 2009

  • Analyzes how risk has increased in Japan, undermining the sense of security and causing greater disparities in society

  • Assesses Japan's record on the environment, the consequences of neo-liberal reforms, immigration policies, the aging society, the US alliance, the Imperial family, and the 'yakuza' criminal gangs 

Keywords: Japan Inc, lost decade, Hirohito, Yakuza, manga, cosplay
