This title was first published in 2001: Japan has a long history of being isolated from multilateral diplomacy. With its increasing economic power, Japan has become more concerned with external foreign relations and hence more involved in multilateral diplomacy. This coherent and interrelated text, brings together studies of the central issues involved, written by prominent Japanese and Western scholars, analyzing the emergence of Japan in multilateral fora from historical, domestic and international perspectives. Those concerned with international relations will find this text an essential guide for courses and research.
