The 1889 Meiji constitution: how it actually worked, the establishment of the Diet and the shifting roles and interests of the parties. A Japanese classic translated by one our leading authorities.


`This is an important work of scholarship translated into English with great skill… can be read with profit by all political historians interested in the creation of constitutional systems.' - Ian Neary, Asian Affairs

`Banno is fortunate in having a translator who is a specialist in Japanese politics, J.A.A. Stockwin, who writes as clearly in English as Banno does in Japanese. Their approach in this translation - working closely together over many months - guaranteed accuracy to the original and smoothness in rendition… Banno's contribution will long remain the standard work in English on the subject.' - George Akita, Monumenta Nipponica
