Organized topically, it is divided into sections, including: - Japan's evolving foreign policy landscape - Global environmental and sustainable development - International and national security - International political economy - International norms and civil society. Providing an evaluation of the key actors, institutions, and networks influencing Japanese foreign policy, the Routledge Handbook of Japanese Foreign Policy is an essential resource for students and scholars of Japanese and Asian Politics, International Relations and Foreign Policy"--
