Collected Writings of J. A. A. Stockwin : Part 1
Arthur Stockwin is retired (2003) Nissan Professor of Japanese Studies, Oxford, and leading international scholar of the post-war Japanese political landscape. To be published in two volumes, Collected Writings of J.A.A.Stockwin, Part I addresses ''The Politics and Political Environment of Japan'', with the second volume (Part II ,2005) concentrating on ''Japanese Foreign Policy, International Perspectives and Japanese Studies''.
Four themes are treated in Part I, which contains 39 chapters, viz., I. Japanese Elections, II. Japanese Political Parties and Political Activism, III. The Japanese Political System and Political System Reform, and IV. Political Factionalism.
The volume opens with a detailed autobiographical sketch of the author''s original ''meeting with Japan'', which began in 1961 after taking up a post at ANU, Canberra (the result of a successful response to an advert in the Manchester Guardian). After twenty-one years in Australia, Arthur Stockwin moved back to the UK to take the chair of the then recently-established Nissan Institute of Japanese Studies. He was to be in post there also for twenty-one years, his retirement coinciding with publication of his Dictionary of Modern Politics of Japan (Routledge, 2003).
