Summary Examining the 160-year relationship between America and Japan, this book considers the evolution of the relationship of these two nations, from the first encounters in the 19th century to major international shifts in a post-9/11 world. The book outlines the emergence of Japan in the wake of the 1905 Russo-Japanese War and the development of US policies toward East Asia at the turn of the century. The book goes on to examine the impact of World War I in Asia, the Washington Treaty System, the issue of immigration, and the deterioration of US-Japan relations in the 1930s as Japan invaded Manchuria. This work also reflects on the Pacific War and the Occupation of Japan, and the country's postwar resurgence, democratization and economic recovery, as well as the challenges facing the US-Japan relationship as it progresses into the 21st century.--adapted from back cover.
