Professor Setsuo Miyazawa's Policing in Japan: A Study on Making Crime represents a very valuable addition to the growing body of English-language works on the Japanese police. This is the first such observational study of the police by a Japanese scholar and the only study to examine the behavior of Japanese detectives. Miyazawa, a professor at Kobe University and one of the leading legal sociologists in Japan, has buttressed his own observations with an extensive, and revealing, questionnaire survey of police attitudes.
