In this major account of Japan's relationship with America since the Second World War, the author breaks new ground in linking Japan's foreign policy with the arena of domestic politics. The changing balance between a pro-American and anti-American groups was a decisive factor and Professor Welfield provides a lucid analysis of this complex scene.

First published in 1988, this title is part of the Bloomsbury Academic Collections series.

Review:

[T]his is one of the most detailed, original, and independent histories of Japanese foreign policy to be found in any language...[it] should be of interest to politicians around the world and not just to specialists in Japanese politics. -- Professor Chalmers Johnson, University of California, Santiago Journal of Japanese Studies This is an immensely enterprising and painstaking piece of work, which will be of interest to most of those concerned to study Japan's place in the post war world. It is clearly the product of years of research, much footwork, and intense reflection on the events and personalities involved, especially in Japan itself. It contains valuable insights, and preserves interesting details which might otherwise have drifted away on the tide. -- Sir Sydney Giffard, K.C.M.G., former British Ambassador to Japan Japan Society Review Magisterial...a magnificent piece of work that should be prescribed reading for students, especially students of modern history. -- Professor J.A.A. Stockwin, former Director of the Nissan Institute for Japanese Studies, University of Oxford Asian Studies Review
