Drawing on a wide range of primary sources, Christopher Aldous explores the extent to which America failed in its goal of democratizing the Japanese police force, arguing that deeply-rooted tradition, the pivotal importance of the black market, and the USs decision to opt for an indirect Occupation produced resistance to reform.

His study concludes with a consideration of the postwar legacy of the Occupations police reform, and touches on a number of recent controversies, most notably the case of Aum Shinrikyo.
