In this study, Masao Miyoshi adopts an off-centre perspective - one that restores the historical asymmetry of encounters between Japan and the United States, from Commodore Perry to Douglas MacArthur - to investigate the blindness that has characterized relations between the two cultures. He moves off from literature to range across culture, poltics, and economics in his analysis of the Japanese and their reflections on the West.
