The Japanese Diet was set up by the allied forces who based it on the German parliamentary system. During the post-war era this resulted in one-party rule until the widely criticized Japanese party system was changed in 1994. In The Japanese Election System, the political systems are analyzed using models of game theory and rational choice and the author demonstrates that the old election system had benefits which do not exist in the current system and concludes that there is still a need for a change.
