Abstract
The report examines the strategic implications of current Japanese defence policy with special attention to the concept of Comprehensive Security. Constitutional, diplomatic, and political restrictions on military defence have necessitated a "comprehensive" approach involving a broad combination of security policies. The present study therefore examines Japan's relations with the US, the USSR and other countries as they directly affect Japan's security. Economic questions, including technological modernization and the Japanese space program, are also examined in light of the Japanese notion of Comprehensive Security. Thus, the fate of military defence arrangements is directly related to, and subordinate to, political and economic circumstances.
