This timely book offers a unique, comprehensive, and theoretical examination of cooperation and conflict, change and adaptation in United States-Japan relations in the context of the profound changes unfolding in the international system. It breaks new ground by offering astonishing new insights into Japan's new globalism and its intersection with U.S. security concerns, the interdependence of techlogy, the ongoing redefinition and reconceptualization of power and security, and the unfolding systemic changes in the context of hegemonic stability. In a wider sense, it also vividly underscores the political, military, and ecomic security interface of American and Japanese foreign policy concerns in developing countries.
