Description - Japan's Quiet Transformation by Jeff Kingston

The 1990s have been termed as 'Japan's Lost Decade' to describe how the phenomenal growth in the Japanese economy ground to a halt and the country was subsequently crippled by enormous and ongoing political, economic and social problems. In responding to these unprecedented difficulties, wide-ranging reforms have been adopted including NPO, Information Disclosure and Judicial Reform legislation. Controversially, this book argues that such reforms are creating a more robust civil society and demonstrate that Japan is far more dynamic than is generally recognized.
