The primary focus of this essay is to note the changes taking place within the Japanese decision-making process. The author argues that Japan's foreign policy is no longer hostage to domestic and economic issues.

From the Paper:

"The geopolitical situation in Northeast Asia is undergoing tremendous change, politically, economically, and militarily. The major debates underway today concern the rise of China, the impending collapse of North Korea, the economic dilemmas of Japan, South Korea and Southeast Asia, and the Sino-Russian "strategic partnership." One emerging issue, which has drawn little attention, however, is the evolving rapprochement between Japan and the former Soviet Union. There are clear signs that the two nations are ready to move past the differences, which have divided them for over half a century."
