From the Back Cover:

Japan's Legal and political system, enshrined in the 1947 Constitution and imposed on the Japanese people with limited consultation but without their involvement during the US Occupation, is largely alien to its history and culture. The author examines the effects of this 'foreign' value system in this detailed and fascinating book, highlighting instances in such areas as the judiciary, human rights, minorities, religion and education, where abuse and exploitation of the law has taken on disturbing proportions at many levels of Japanese public life. The chapter on scandals is not exhaustive but offers a fully documented account of the main post-war events, including the Showa Denko case, Lockheed and Recruit.

About the Author:

Peter J. Herzog recieved is Ph.D. from Fordham University, New York. He has taught at Sophia University (Jochi Daigaku), Tokyo, worked in the Research Division of the Fuji Bank, and wrritten numerous books and articles.
