"This reexamination of the controversial role Emperor Hirohito played during the Pacific War gives particular attention to the question: If the emperor could not stop Japan from going to war with the Allied Powers in 1941, why was he able to play a crucial role in ending the war in 1945?"
Toward a peaceable future : redefining peace, security, and kyosei from a multidisciplinary perspective( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using concise terms, peace can be defined as freedom from hostility; security as immunity from danger; and kyosei as social responsibility to live together peaceably. Can a new comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to peace studies be developed? Why is a new direction essential, and what kind of impact might it have? How can educational institutions reach across disciplines to educate students about these globally important concepts?" "In a pioneering cross-cultural, transnational, and multifaceted endeavor. Japanese and American scholars from various disciplines jointly explore these challenging questions by redefining the three key concepts of "peace, security and kyosei." Based on academic analyses in Japan and the United States, the book offers new perspectives for interdisciplinary peace studies and stimulates a public dialogue on how to shape a safer and more peaceful future for individuals, communities, and nations."--Jacket
