Do you have recommendations for reading and/or insights on Komeito/New Komeito? Particularly welcome is anything that helps understand how and when it gets what it wants and when it doesn't as the LDP’s junior coalition partner. Both Japanese and English texts are welcome. This will be a key element of a book that a friend of mine is co-writing. The scholar comes to this blog fairly frequently (thanks), so please post any leads here. If for any reason you prefer not to post it here, please email: email@example.com. For offline material, please indicate, if possible, the title of the book/magazine/monograph and the names of the author and publisher.
