Continuities of Legal Consciousness: Professor John Haley's Writings on Twelve Hundred Years of Japanese Legal History

Abstract

Working from Professor Haley’s division of the historical process into four major temporal components—Nara, Kamakura, Tokugawa, and Meiji, I hope to suggest how pieces of the historical puzzle are evident in Japanese legal dynamics at work since the publication of Authority Without Power nearly twenty years ago. Then, I will conclude by trying to assess what we may be able to imagine coming soon in Japan’s future.
