Japan's Interventionist State Summary

Japan's Interventionist State: The Role of the MAFF by Aurelia George-Mulgan

Japan's Interventionist State gives a detailed examination of Japan's Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and its role in promoting, protecting and preserving the regime of agricultural support and protection. This account is integral to the author's extended and multidimensional explanation for why Japan continues to provide high levels of assistance to its farmers and why it continues to block market access concessions in the WTO and other agricultural trade talks.

Japan's Interventionist State Reviews

'This book represents the most comprehensive analysis of Japan's agricultural bureaucracy available in English. It offers insights into the rationale behind the interventionist regime and a detailed picture of how Japan's Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries(MAFF) guides every aspect of agricultural production in Japan.' - Japanese J. of Political Science, Volume 6

'The goal of this book is to examine Japan's agricultural political economy. The focus on Japan allows for incredibly exhaustive analysis within a modest sized text book.'

- Christina Davis, - Japanese J. of Political Science, Volume 6
