Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A dozen essays that emerged from a research project in which Japanese and American scholars of international relations explore and redefine the common issues facing the two countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Having proceeded independently, they gathered to discuss their points in Hayama, Japan in July 1997, six months after their reports were submitted to all others in the project. They cover security, trade and domestic politics, economic developments, the impact of the Chinese domestic situation, human rights, and the international order.
