Materials from the former archives of political scientist Teiji Yabe (1902-67), a figure integral to the realpolitik of the prewar through postwar period. This is a first-rate collection of historical resources focusing on the turbulent Showa years from pre-WWII to the 1960s and containing around 6,000 pieces of primary material.

It consists of Yabe’s own writings and correspondence, plus internal documents of the groups and institutions he was involved with from before the war, right through to the postwar years, such as the Showa Kenkyukai think-tank, Navy Ministry and naval academy, Constitutional Investigation Committee, administrative council (Gyosei Shingikai), public security investigation committee (Koan Shinsa Iinkai), council for the electoral system, and committee charged with preparations for the Meiji centenary.
