About this book


After a brief description of Japan's geography, people and language and a summary of Japanese history and culture the book gives an account of the Japanese constitution, the Diet and the organization of government (central and local). Separate chapters follow on law and order, foreign affairs and defence, finance, industry and commerce, agriculture and infrastructure, employment, health and welfare, and finally education and culture. Seven appendices provide additional facts and figures. A full list of suggestions for further reading is included.
