This is Yasuhiro Nakasone, the former Japanese Prime Minister of Japan from 1982 to 1987 who is credited as being a key player in helping Japan emerge as a world powerhouse during the postwar era. Nakasone reached his zenith in the 1980s when he became a contemporary of Ronald Reagan, Helmut Kohl, Francois Mitterrand, Margaret Thatcher, and Mikhail Gorbachev. In addition to his foreign affairs legacy, he is also known for pushing through the privatization of Japanese state owned companies and helping to revitalize Japanese nationalism during and after his term as prime minister. Mr. Nakasone retired as a parliamentarian in 2003 and is currently the oldest living Japanese prime minister. Photo taken at his private office in Tokyo on January 18, 2009 during an interview for the New York Times.
