|Abstract:||When the Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) kicked the Liberal Democratic Party out of power in 2009, there was some sense of hope amongst the Japanese that things would change. If nothing else, the Japanese hoped that the DPJ would bring new ideas to tackle some of the country's ongoing problems. Reality soon proved otherwise. Not only has the DPJ quietly abandoned many of its campaign pledges, it has proved just as incapable at resolving ongoing problems. Jeffrey Hornung analyzes the prospects of the Kan government in Tokyo.|
