Description
As one of the four drafters of the Japanese constitution who worked on creating a Japanese diet, Osborne Hauge was instrumental in determining the future of Japan's government after World War II. He discusses the decision between a bicameral and unicameral diet and how the power of the emperor was to be interpreted. He also discusses the freedoms the new constitution gave Japanese political parties including the Communist Party which would eventually become cause for concern during the Allied occupation. He also explains the dynamics of many of the members who drafted the constitution with him and how they contributed to the process.
