Description - Japan Rising by Kenneth B. Pyle
America has a long tradition of underestimating and misunderstanding Japan. We have viewed it as a quiet and reactive nation. In fact, Japan has a history of rapid and dramatic shifts-from its 180-degree turn from brutal imperialism in favor of withdrawal from international politics after World War II to the evaporation of the Japanese economic miracle in the 1990s. Kenneth Pyle tells the unprecedented story of Japans trajectory over the past 150 years, illuminating its policy strategy and shedding new light on recent events.
