The emergence of a significant new partnership involving Canada, Japan, and the United States has been largely ignored by students of international relations and Canadian foreign policy. This collection, written by scholars and policymakers from the countries involved, explores the evolving alliance and illustrates its growing strength in a collective global leadership.

The papers examine the three market-oriented democracies in their changing roles toward each other and show how they have moved beyond their separate, special, bilateral relationships into a dynamic three-way engagement. Their intersections in trade, investment, business negotiations, peacekeeping, and environmental affairs are analyzed from a range of perspectives, including political science, management studies, economics, geography, and history. A powerful view unfolds: in the context of a rapidly globalizing economic system, this new triumvirate can only continue to strengthen and flourish, adding its influence to the creation of a new world order.
