This readable, wide-ranging analysis brings you quickly up to speed on the ever-changing relationship between Japan and the United States. Drawing on history, cultural commentary, and opinion, the author portrays two nations in conflict yet increasingly connected.
Is Japan a friend, a rival, a role model? No question is more important, for our relationship with Japan and its technological and industrial strength in the Pacific Rim will help determine our place in the world of the next century.
