Article publication date: 1 June 2004



From a forced renunciation in 1946 of war as a tool of international relations, Japan progressed during the next 58 years – first pushed by a former enemy, then entrained by world events and a renewed emergence of nationalism at home – to de facto repudiation of a position of studied neutrality. Armed Japanese troops are today once again present in a theatre of war.
