Contents The post-Meiji restoration : modernisation and the rise of the authoritarian state -- Minobe Tatsukichi : the legal state and its obstacles -- Sakai Toshihiko : industrialisation, heirarchy and the rise of Japanese socialist thought -- Saitō Takao : party politics, regimentation and resistance -- Dissent and its uses
Summary "This volume examines the careers and intellectual positions of three prominent Japanese 'dissidents' in the later Imperial period - Minobe Tatsukichi, Sakai Toshihiko and Saito Takao - as individual responses to the new forms of authority that appeared after the Meiji Restoration of 1868. The principles to which each adhered contributed to the new ideas about authority and the individual in post-Restoration Japan. They also remain fundamental in today's Japanese polity and society. The study reaffirms the serious limitations of the pre-war Japanese political system, its structural and institutional problems, and deep-rooted ambivalence about democratic change"--Page 4 of cover
