Dr. Cohen examines the major elements with foreign policy-making roles--public opinion, interest groups, the media of communication, the Executive branch, and the Congress--to determine the nature of their interests in the Japanese peace settlement and their actions respecting it. Then he analyzes the interrelationships among these factors, and the patterns of influence they revealed. Originally published in 1957. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand techlogy to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
