This study examines the security-related aspects behind Japan's emerging internationalism. Japan has for some time been projecting a higher international profile, of which the Diet's (Parliament) approval to allow Japanese armed forces to operate abroad is but one manifestation. The book's scope is not limited to military issues - it embraces a spectrum of security-related topics such as constitutional amendment, international re-alignment and co-operation, defence industrialization, Japan-US relations and technology leakage, and Japan's role in the new international order. Ron Matthews has also written "European Armaments Collaboration".
