The article has been divided into eleven short chapters, which deal with many complex issues of the politics and economy in Japan. The authoress explains the socio-cultural conditions, domination of state bureaucracy, regulation and control mechanisms, administrative rule, describes specific position of members of the parliament and budget management, explains why the dependency on the bureaucracy is so high in Japan and why the country introduced the investment-oriented development, also how the politics responds. Finally she writes about corruption and electoral reform, background of corruption, media establishment and tries to give explanation why reforming the Japanese political establishment is so difficult.
