In Japan, The Toothless Tiger, Declan Hayes explores the threats Japan faces in the coming decades, particularly if the United States downscales its military presence in the region. Since Japan's defeat and occupation at the end of World War II, the Land of the Rising Sun has developed only limited military capability. Constrained by a new constitution dictated after the war by the occupying forces, Japan has not been able to rebuild its former military might. Japan has become a toothless tiger - seemingly fierce, but actually powerless.

Declan Hayes is Professor of International Business at Tokyo's Sophia University, where he lectures in the undergraduate and post-graduate Business and Economics programs.Review:
"A controversial book with which many will disagree, and for that reason well worth the read. Combative, argumentative and critical, it highlights the negatives as well as the usual lauded positives of Japan's place in the world. With the current revisionist move to the Right in Japanese politics, it is timely reminder of some of the darker forces underlying the Japanese 'success' story." —John Clammer, United Nations University, Tokyo
"Declan Hayes is fearless in his analysis and reliable to offer a different take on things. Japan's military role and ambitions, and her stance vis-a-vis China and North Korea remain as topical as ever. Declan's mix of analysis, historical facts and anecdotes does not fail to engage the reader." —Richard Werner, Director, Centre for Banking, Finance and Sustainable Development, University of Southampton and author of Princes of the Yen
"Declan Hayes positions and contextualizes Japan, reminding us of its pivotal role between an emerging superpower—China, a nuclear-armed North Korea...and a distant but still influential US." —Professor Brian McVeigh, University of Arizona
