Meanwhile, North Korea continues to retain and expand its nuclear weapons and missiles programs. Against this backdrop, China and South Korea remain wary of any military ambitions Japan may entertain. What does a strong Japanese military mean for the Pacific region and how does this impact the politics of military power in China and Japan? In this program, Sheila Smith, one of the world’s most foremost experts on Japan and East Asia, discusses her newest book, Japan Rearmed: The Politics of Military Power. Speaker: Sheila A.
