Mark Lincicome offers a new perspective on Japenese educational debates and policy reforms that have taken place under the guise of internationalization sine the mid-1980s. By contextualizing these developments within a historical framework spanning the entire twentieth century, he challenges the argument-put forward by education officials, conservative politicians, and their supporters in the academy and the business world-that history offers no guide for addressing the educational challenges that face contemporary Japan.
