Recorded on 13 October 2008 at U8, Tower One

As the Soviet Union disappeared so did the most serious threat to Japanese security. But it was not long before four TnewU threats took its place.

Richard Samuels is Ford International Professor of Political Science and director of the Center for International Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
