This book casts doubt on many prevailing assumptions about the complex relationship between Japan and China. Based on ten years of research in the United States, China, and Japan, the author argues that the relationship is w more dispute-prone but manageable politically, and that the twto countries are more integrated ecomically than in prior years. Military uncertainty persists, however, and depsite increased contact between the two nations' governments, the relationship between China and Japan remains cool.
