Status Power: Japan's Foreign Policy Toward Korea
Isa DuckeISBN: 0415933714;
This book examines recent developments in Japanese-Korean relations. Its aim is to show how "soft" issues like history consciousness or national identity have an impact on concrete policy decisions including security or economic matters which are traditionally considered more substantial foeign policy issues. The author develops the concept of status as based on either prestige of on a positive reputation, or moral authority. Cases studies illustrate the mechanisms in which status power is used for other ends, also in the policy areas of economy and security.
