Title Japan In The Melting Pot : An Analysis
Abstract/Summary Japan is undergoing an unprecedented period of political upheaval. The long-serving LDP has been dislodged from decades of office by the initially-popular but now distrusted DPJ and its shaky Coalition Government. Confronted with a protracted economic downturn as well as deep public alienation from the political process in Japan, newly-installed Prime Minister, Naoto Kan, is faced with the daunting prospect of winning back public support for the Government previously led by former Premier Yukio Hatoyama as well as with the task of revitalizing the Japanese economy. Externally, Japan is faced with dangerous confrontation on the Korean Peninsula and is challenged by China's rapid progress towards replacing Japan as the world's second largest economy.
