About this item

Essays and articles from books and journals offer a broad critical perspective on the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan, which has been centrally important in Japanese post-war politics since its founding in 1955, and so important as well on the world stage. They cover the origin and development of the Liberal Democratic Party, its pillars, and the Party after the end of the 55 System. Among the topics are rational foundations for the organization of the Liberal Democratic Party in Japan, manipulating electoral rules to manufacture single-party dominance, the Köenkai: origins and development of a vote-mobilization machine, the prime minister and party politics: the Liberal Democratic Party and the opposition, the Liberal Democratic Party at 50: sources of dominance and changes in the Koizumi era, the evolution of the Party's electoral strategy: towards a more coherent political party, and Japan in 2014: all about Shinzo Abe.
