Description: This seminar examines the evolution of postwar Japanese politics through the lens of comparative politics. Students will analyze how Japan fits into the broader political science literature by critiquing past research that identifies Japan as a "typical" vs. "outlier" case. Topics include: developmental state; political culture; electoral politics; policy decision-making; clientelistic vs. programmatic politics; political leadership. While not required, previous exposure to Japanese history / sociology / political science and statistical analysis are recommended.
