Beyond Bilateralism: U.S.-Japan Relations in the New Asia-Pacificby Ellis S. Krauss (Editor), T. J. Pempel (Editor), T. J. Pempel (Editor), Ellis S. Krauss, Krauss (Editor)
In the decades following World War II, relations between Japan and the United States were characterized by a strong bilateralism. This relationship has recently been challenged by a changing security situation related to greater economic development in Asia, greater Chinese power, and organized nonstate terror. Increasing global capital flows has also changed the nature of the U.S.-Japanese relationship, as has the greater political and economic role played by an array of multilateral structures, including the United Nations, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum, and the World Trade Organization. Krauss (international relations and Pacific studies, U. of California at San Diego) and Pempel (political science, U. of California at Berkeley) have arranged these 12 papers examining the changing nature of U.S.-Japanese relations in accordance with these three processes challenging bilateralism.
