This collection of essays traces the development of the U.S. - Japan economic and security relationship since 1960. While most studies of this kind are written from a parochial American persepective that emphasizes the benevolence of American economic and security policies towards Japan, the editors of this survey endeavored to uncover whether in fact the Japanese have skillfully exploited America's strategic needs in order to serve Japan's own interests.

The study thus seeks to answer whether the U.S. traded American economic interests for Japanse cooperation in the security sphere. Contributors to the study include:

  • Michael Schaller
  • Kiyoshi Sugawa
  • Koji Murata
  • Marie Anchordoguy
  • Edward J. Lincoln
  • Alan Wolff
  • and Chalmers Johnson
