About the Book

Examining the 160-year relationship between America and Japan, this edited volumes deals in depth with the evolution of the relationship of these two nations on opposite sides of the Pacific, from the very first encounter in the early nineteenth century through the major international shifts in the post 9/11 era.

This book traces the emergence of Japan in the wake of the 1905 Russo-Japanese War and the development of U.S. policies toward East Asia at the turn of the century. It goes on to examine the impact of World War I upon Asia, the Washington Treaty System, the immigration issue and the gradual deterioration of US-Japan relations during the 1930s. It also deals with the difficult period of US-Japan relations in the Pacific War as well as the Occupation Period, and the country’s postwar resurgence, democratization and economic recovery, as well as the various challenges facing the current bilateral relationship as it further progresses into the twenty-first century. This is a must read for those interested in the history of this important relationship as well as for scholars of diplomatic history and international relations.

Review

“This is a wonderful book that provides a fresh perspective into the current state of US-Japan relations by placing it within the greater historical context of nearly two centuries of political and diplomatic interactions between the two nations across the Pacific.”

Watanabe Akio, Professor Emeritus, The University of Tokyo, Japan

“Now in its thirteenth printing in Japan, this is an extraordinary history of US-Japan political, diplomatic, economic, and military exchange. Penned by a who’s who of Japanese specialists of US-Japan relations, the volume offers the first truly bi-national overview of almost two hundred years of trans-Pacific ties, one that is equally sensitive to developments in Washington and Tokyo and that highlights a striking mutual dependence dating to the nineteenth century. Students of Asia, Japan, the Pacific War, and US-Japan relations would do well to begin their examination of trans-Pacific cooperation and conflict with this one volume.”

Frederick R. Dickinson, Department of History, University of Pennsylvania, USA
