Editorial Reviews

Booknews
U.S. Foreign Service officer Osius argues that U.S. and Japanese interests coincide enough to warrant strengthening their security alliance. He reviews the reasons why, suggesting that it helps prevent tensions between Japan, China, and Japan's other neighbors from boiling into conflict. It also helps Japan and U.S. manage potential regional conflicts. He examines challenges to continuing the alliance, including Japanese public opposition to U.S. military presence and growing Japanese militarism , and suggest they can be overcome. Annotation c.
