The central argument of Japan and the Enemies of Open Political Science is that Eurocentric blindness is not a moral but a scientific failing. In this wide-ranging critique of Western social science, Anglo-American philosophy and French theory, Williams works on the premise that Japan is the most important political system of our time. He explains why social scientists have been so keen to ignore or denigrate Japan's achievements. If social science is to meet the needs of the `Pacific Century', it requires a sustained act of intellectual demolition and subsequent renewal.

About the Author:

David Williams is Senior Research Fellow in Japanese Politics at the School of East Asian Studies, The University of Sheffield. He is the author of Japan: Beyond the End of History (Routledge, 1994.)

Review:

"This is an ambitious, controversial, ground-breaking and timely book...Its overrriding interest and importance, however, lies in its thesis, which is that the historical experience of Japan in the period since it embarked on 'modernization' illuminates, perhaps better than any other passage in modern history, the limitations and deformation of Western social theory.."
-John Gray, Jesus College, Oxford
"This is an intellectually powerful polemic in the tradition of Francis Fukuyama's "End of History, which is in fact one of William's several targets. His main target is the formalism and Eurocentrism of what most American universities call the social sciences.... This book will have great influence in the groves of academe but we recommend it to all who are interested in how our world is changing."
-Chalmers Johnson, Kiriyama Pacific Rim Foundation
