Disillusionment with Japan

last modified May 19, 2015 02:33 PM

From devastation in 1945 through vigorous growth and increasing riches to stagnation, is that the story of Japan over the last 70 years? Doubts about Japan’s future seem inevitable. 

A recent collection of 15 essays by Japanese and foreign experts, “Examining Japan’s Lost Decades,” edited by Yoichi Funabashi and Dr Barak Kushner, University Senior Lecturer in Modern Japanese History, is reviewed in the Japan Times by Hugh Cortazzi who served as Britain’s ambassador to Japan from 1980-1984.
