Logic is a fine book, in fact an outstanding one. The jacket blurbs are, for once, right in their enthusiasm...For the Japanese scholar, the detail-oriented reader and anyone who wants an insider's view, written by an outsider, this book has no current peer. The Logic of Japanese Politics offers a hugely fascinating tour through contemporary Japanese politics. Gerry Curtis makes the mysterious understandable while shaking up your view of what might have seemed obvious. Specialists will appreciate Curtis's expertise, but anyone who loves politics will be grateful for this insightful look at how power works in Japan.
