  • Japan's Outlook on World Politics

    This 5 page paper examines some of Japan's policies in order to evaluate the statement that Japan will continue the active, assertive and nationalist stance it takes now with regard to its defense policy, foreign economic policy and diplomatic stance regarding its history. The paper finds that the statement is largely untrue since Japan is changing – or considering changing – all three of these policies; however, the terms "active, assertive and nationalist" will still apply. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Postcolonialism In Korea, China And Japan

    A 14 page paper that begins with a brief explanation of colonialism and postcolonialism. The essay goes on to discuss Korea when annexed by Japan and the years following their liberation; the partial colonization of China by Japan and some of the major events following liberation. The essay also discusses Japan, which was never colonized but that experienced events that changed the country. Bibliography lists 16 sources.

  • Liberal Democracy of Japan

    8 pages in length. Determining whether or not Japan can be described as a liberal democracy requires the assessment of a number of areas in order to ascertain the extent to which this might be true. Indeed, Japan has come a long way toward the notion of liberal democracy; however, it can be argued that this progression has only succeeded in reaching halfway to the ultimate goal, with a considerable length still to go. Looking at various entities -- including political institutions and practices, participation of the public in the political system and protest movements, effects of the media, effects of the bureaucracy and local government, dominance of the Liberal Democratic Party, as well as the 1993 election results -- one is bound to gain a clearer perspective upon the issue of Japan's move toward liberal democracy. The writer discusses to what extent Japan can be considered a liberal democracy. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Prostitution in Japanese Culture

    This 8 page paper examines prostitution in Japanese culture, and argues that because Japan at one time licensed prostitutes for "use" by servicemen, and because sex tourists are mostly men, prostitution in Japan is run largely by men. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Ozu/Tokyo Story

In this canonical film, Ozu, who also co-authored the screenplay, addresses a cultural generation gap that emerged in post-World War II Japan. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
