“Daisuke Akimoto’s impressive command of diverse nuclear arms negotiations reflects his personal commitment to building a world made secure by achieving peace with justice.” —Stuart Rees, Professor Emeritus, University of Sydney "This is a book that needs to be read by anyone interested in understanding what drives these ambivalent and inconsistent positions. I heartily recommend it to scholars and practitioners who wish to build a more peaceful Japan in a world of nuclear threat and imminent catastrophe." —Kevin Clements, Professor, University of Otago, New Zealand "Japan's relationship with nuclear weapons is complex… Dr. Akimoto provides readers with a detailed explanation of this relationship and will help us better understand this important topic." —Robert Dujarric, Director, Institute of Contemporary Asian Studies, Temple University, Japan Campus. This book examines Japan’s nuclear identity and its implications for abolition of nuclear weapons. By applying analytical eclecticism in combination with international relations theory, this book categorizes Japan’s nuclear identity as a ‘nuclear-bombed state’, ‘nuclear disarmament state’, ‘nuclear-threatened state’, and a ‘nuclear umbrella state’. This research investigates whether the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were ‘genocide’ or not, to what degree Japan has contributed to nuclear disarmament, how Japan has been threatened by ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons of North Korea, and how Japan’s security policy has been embedded with the nuclear strategy of the United States. It also sheds light on theoretical factors that Japan does not support the Treaty on Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Finally, this book considers the future of Japan’s nuclear identity and attempts to explore alternatives for Japan’s nuclear disarmament diplomacy toward a world without nuclear weapons. Daisuke Akimoto is Official Secretary in the House of Representatives, Japan, and former Assistant Professor at the Soka University Peace Research Institute.
