This book is simultaneously a story of a troubled people and an analysis of protest, violence, and challenge to the state authority. The setting is Japan and the instance is the controversial building of the Tokyo International Airport. Apter recreates the struggle of familiar and intimate groups--small farmers, policemen, bureaucrats, radicals--engaged in extra-institutional pretest against the state. Global lessons emerge from this cross-cultural analysis of violent conflict taking place within the political constraints of an advanced, democratic country.Apter, David E. is the author of 'Against State:politics+social Protest..' with ISBN 9780674009202 and ISBN 0674009207.
