Japan's Security Identity synopsis
Since the end of the Cold War, there has been a major change in Japanesesecurity policy, where the Japanesesecurityidentity has changed from a state of peace to an international state. In this book, Bhubendar Singh argues that since the 1990s the Japanese elite in the security policy industry has realized that their previous approach to security policy, which has been influenced by the identity of the security of the state of peace, is no longer appropriate.
Instead, Japan, as a member of the international community, had to play a responsible role in regional and international security affairs, which required greater emphasis on the role of the military in Japan's security policy. To explore this change in Japan's securityidentity and associated security behavior, this book contrasts between the three areas that define and shape Japan's security policy: the concept of Japan (or definition) of national security; the country's military contribution to regional and international affairs; Security policy system responsible for the formulation of security policy.
Moreover, it seeks to challenge the realistic, dominant interpretation of Japan's security policy by adopting an identity-based approach and showing how realistic calculations correctly capture the course of Japan's post-Cold War security policy, fail to explain the reasons for change. In the post-Cold War Japanesesecurity behavior.
This book is an important addition to the current literature on Japanesesecurity policy and will be of great benefit to students and researchers interested in Japanese and Asian policies, as well as securitystudies and international relations more broadly.
