Aug 25 Japan sees the light (The Economist)
 About to lead a rebellion designed to split his own party and bring down the government, Tsutomu Hata turned to the prime minister, Kiichi Miyautwa, on June 18th and, without irony, bowed. In its exquisite politeness, just as in its phenomenal economic success and its incomprehensible politics, Japan has long seemed different from all other countries.
