Japan's Grand Strategy
Speaker(s): Professor Richard Samuels
Chair: Professor Richard Samuels
Recorded on 13 October 2008 in 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. Japan, rarely credited for its foreign policy, has responded with surprising strategic agility.
