Book News Annotation:

Between 1935 and 1937, 16 Japanese cabinet ministers, finance ministers, banking officials, and businessman stood trial for illegally profiting from the sale of stock held by the Bank of Japan. The judges eventually dismissed all the charges, saying that the procurators had completely fabricated the case. Mitchell (history, U. of Missouri in St. Louis) examines the origins and effects of the scandal, arguing that the case demonstrated major (and persisting) flaws in the Japanese legal system, spurred calls for legal reform, and strengthened the institutional independence of the judiciary.
