The focal point of my research is the nexus between  political thought and action, primarily but not exclusively in  twentieth-century Japan.  In my most recent work I have explored new perspectives on thought and action  during Japan’s  war years (1931-45), in the context of such themes as pan-Asianism, the  discourse on economic ethics, colonialism, and leftwing movements. I continue  to be interested in the rise and decline of citizens’ and other new social  movements in postwar Japan  and elsewhere, especially in relation to the rise of neoliberalism; the history  of Marxism; and the dynamics of empire.
