Review

No other book has comparable breadth and depth of coverage. Japan's International Relations has a basic clarity that will appeal to novices but a nuanced depth that will simultaneously make it required reading for experts. It is a wonderful book.
–T.J. Pempel, Boeing Professor of International Studies, University of Washington

First Sentence
Japan seems to be unique among the major industrialized powers in terms of the extent to which its international relations in the post-World War II era (hereafter, post-war era) have been subject to a range of contending interpretations. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Japan's International Relations-a Great Read Feb. 11 2002
Format:Paperback
Japan's International Relations
One of the best books I have ever read on Japan's international relations and a successful attempt to present a comprehensive overview and analysis on Japan's relations with East Asia, the U.S. and Europe.
This book is interesting for students, scholars and all those who are interested in the how and why of Japan's international relations.
The book is easy to use, is dealing with Japan's relations with East Asia, the U.S. and Europe separately and the chapters are divided in a way that you always and exactly know what you are reading.
The index at the end of the book makes looking for keywords very easy and so far there is no keyword that I have not found in this book.
It is certainly well-researched information, goes into details without loosing itself in them making sure that the reader gets to know the important facts of Japan's relations with the countries in its geographical region, the United States and Europe.
It is a European perspective on Japan's international relations and without a doubt a refreshing change from so many books on Japanese politics and economics mainly giving the American perspective.
I am dealing with Japan's international relations professionally and I use the book as dictionary as well as a source for information and facts that I have not known before.
The book is also going beyond the standard view on Japan's international relations due to the fact that the authors back their research also on numerous secondary Japanese sources.
Lots of interesting background information indeed, the footnotes are numerous giving lots of advice on further reading.

No doubt that the authors know what they are talking about and if you want to know how Japan's relations with the U.S., East Asia and Europe work and what they mean for Japan, this is the book to consult.
Well-done Glenn Hook, Chris Hughes, Julie Gilson and Hugo Dobson

1.0 out of 5 stars misguided July 30 2008
By Robin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I truly regretted buying this book. It dumbs down and contains minimal information. It lacks useful perspective, because it tries to sweep over all areas even-handedly, when their importance is clearly weighted.
