Descrição da editora
Download The Constitution of Japan, 1946 and discover the roots of its creation under the Allied occupation of Japan following World War II, led by Supreme Commander Douglas MacArthur.
Known as the fundamental law of Japan, as well as an act to replace Japan's previous militaristic and absolute monarchy system, the constitution was enacted on May 3, 1947 as the new constitution for postwar Japan. Currently termed as a rigid document, with no subsequent amendments since its adoption, the constitution was intended to usher in liberal democracy.
Also known as the Postwar Constitution, it is most famous for the renunciation of the right to wage war in Article 9.
Discover the true role of the Emperor of Japan; the fundamental rights of the Japanese parliamentary system; the ideals, rights and duties of the Japanese people; and most famously: the renunciation of war.
Download The Peace Constitution of Japan today to fully understand how a previously maligned country reinvented itself in the wake of World War II.
