This is a study of the impact of inter-war naval arms control
policy-making on the domestic politics of Japan, especially the
areas of civil-military, inter-military (Army/Navy) and especially
intra-military (Navy) relations and on the professional and
political career of one leading naval figure, Admiral Kato Kanji
(1873-1939). In this re-appraisal of Kato's career, the author
challenges the conventional and negative interpretation of both
Kato's role in the naval politics and factions within the Imperial
Navy, utilizing Kato's involvement in the domestic political debate
as a focal device for studying two key areas of Japanese
civil-military relations: civilian control and the phenomenon of
massive, overt naval intervention in domestic politics.
