Japan, after coming out of the bubble ... has really bobed and swayed but more than anything  because of the international fluctuations of the region.  But now this region has entered into the  world economic importance,  but due and through China.  Japan has also adapted to this fact  and      that is also how  1_ strong leadership ...  2_ clues as to what japan had to be in order to become the leader of the region ...  nationalism  ... industrialize   (by then 5 or 6 th  most richest)     ...   impire (now that is seen as  bad .. but then it was differetn    -> had a war with China ... then Korea .. then the russians )  They had then completed all three requirements ... being an imperialist power ...              the  cues were very clear  as to what they had to do  ......  and Japan did it !! Today-   a series of weak and inept leaders (PM’s)    partly because the party system was in  flux.  Breaking apart and reforming.      The people were preocupied by how to get to be PM and  not what to so much what to do when you got there XD.  Ito hirobumi, 1890’s  studied for a year  as to how to write a constitution.   Clearly the people running Japan were clearly different from  the people that run it today. -Today    being a nuclear power is what makes and defines the BIG legues ... but obviously  Japan has that alergy so thats out of the question?                 If your not a nuclear power then  how can you have international power of diplomicy.          There are other ways as well ...  being president of the WB or IDB   or even creating an economic system with Japan as its core  center ... but they were bared by other powers (CHINA US)    so even though they were the  second largest economy ... they had no international diplomatic power. Even though they provided over 50% in the World Bank or IMF.  Politics : they had spent the  second half of the 20 th  century as an aliy of the United States ... so they were just backing their  things .. They did and still provide around 22% of the UN    and are still not even on the security councle. By and large .. the Japanese have played (both in the bureacracy and in the desicion making  structures of the UN   - but still have not yet achieved anything)      + they want to be on the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
