  3. The Secret to National Peace


Our ideal of international peace is now challenged more than ever. From the EU, United States, Asia, and around the world, we witness a global shift to power politics and oppression. This book examines today’s world from a perspective of a Japanese military professional, and asks each one of us to discuss whether we want to avoid war at all.

The Secret to National Peace is a compact, yet insightful guide to peace-making in today’s global power structure. Contrasting two ends of the political stance—“liberalism” and “realism”—the author seeks to offer an alternative.
