Description - Japanese-Soviet/Russian Relations since 1945 by Kimie Hara
More than fifty years on from the end of World War II, relations between Japan and Russia have yet to be normalized. The so-called 'Northern Territories' problem has been the major stumbling block in preventing the two countries from signing a peace treaty and improving their relations. In this new volume, Hara scrutinises the crucial features of post-war bilateral relations, focusing on the problems of the territorial dispute and political rapprochement. She approaches these issues from the foreign policy decision-making perspective and examines four bilateral summits to explore patterns, changes and tendencies in the decision-making process. Moreover, her remarkable discovery of controversial archival documents introduces new aspects into the origin and nature of the territorial dispute. This is a comprehensive and well-documented study of the relations between the two countries. It is a balanced and sober account of one of the most controversial disputes in the Asia-Pacific.
