About the Book

How can peace be realized in the modern world? And how can Japan ensure its own security? Despite the intense debates over Japan’s recent security-related legislation, such vital issues as these were never explored. To give proper consideration to these thorny questions, it is indispensable to have both a knowledge of history indicating the circumstances in which wars occur and a real recognition of the security environment of the twenty-first century. This work explores hotly debated security-related matters from a standard viewpoint on international politics and diplomatic history. It also advocates in a bold yet level-headed manner the form Japan’s security should take and the path Japan should follow to make that a reality.

内容紹介

現代の世界で、平和はいかにして実現可能か。日本の安全は、どうすれば確保できるのか――。安保関連法をめぐる激しい論戦にもかかわらず、こうした肝要な問いが掘り下げられることはなかった。これらの難問を適切に考えるには、どのような場合に戦争が起こるかを示す歴史の知見と、21世紀の安全保障環境をめぐるリアルな認識とが、ともに不可欠である。国際政治・外交史の標準的見地から、あるべき安全保障の姿と、そのために日本がとるべき道筋を大胆かつ冷静に説く、論争の書。
