Reviews - What do customers think about Japan's Refugee Policy: To Be of the World?

Insightful, Necessary Study of Japan's Refugee Policies  Feb 4, 2008
As a lecturer of Japanese refugee law and policy, I found this book to be essential reading for myself and my students. Dr. Ryuji Mukae's study provides an insightful analysis of the Government of Japan's refugee reception policies over four main periods. He examines how Japan's self interest and international pressure played often contradictory roles in shaping refugee policies.

During the first period between 1895 and 1945, for example, Mukae argues that the Japanese government provided support for revolutionaries like China's Sun Yat-sen and Korea's Kim Ok-kyun as a means of enhancing Japan's imperialist foreign policy objectives in its neighboring countries. He also examines Japan's restrictive policies towards Russian Jews during World War I, the era after World War II, the Indochinese refugee crisis of 1978, and Japan's accession to the United Nations Convention on the Status of Refugees in 1982.

The study provides rich empirical evidence to dispel the myth that Japan has no significant history of receiving refugees while it also underscores the ramifications of Japan's foreign policy interests on this issue. The book could benefit from more in-depth discussion of Japan's external refugee policy and a less pedantic writing style. However, the study should be commended as an impressive work of nuanced scholarship on a subject that might not otherwise be available to the English-language world.
From the author  Nov 1, 2004
Please remove the two reviews of my book, which appear on this site because these two reviewers admit that they haven't read my book. As a general rule, people should not write reviews of the books they haven't read.
student  Dec 30, 2003
Professor Mukae is very informative with International Politics. Therefore, although I have never read this book, I think it should be great based on his knowledge.
Mukae is my professor  Dec 17, 2003
I have Mukae as an IR professor. He is very good. I did not read the book, but he's a good man. Buy the book, it's gold.
