Although America has been preoccupied with wars against global terrorism since the end of the Cold War, China's growing powers and North Korea's sage of nuclear weapon programs have been the main issues in East Asia. Japan responds to these two developments by building up missile defence and passing legislation which enables her to cope with emergencies. And conservatives have been a main driving force for more robust Japan's defence and foreign policy. Although most books on Japan available in the West are written in terms of Westerners' or Japanese leftists' viewpoints, this book is written in terms of those of conservatives. Their views seem to have been perfunctorily dealt with or dismissed as "dangerous" in the West. This book is intended to fill the lacuna.
