This is a book about Japanese grand strategy. Its author, Kenneth B. The book is addressed primarily to the policy community of the United States.
Some have argued that Japan is reactive and lacks a strategy, whereas others have claimed that the country has pragmatically pursued its interests within the given circumstances. This paper argues that Japan has maintained its own vision and strategies since the Cold War. Japan seeks to preserve existing liberal international rather than domestic rules; however, its method is classical as it includes a balance-of-power approach involving military expansion and alliances, and a diplomatic approach to making agreements with a variety of political regimes, whether democratic or authoritarian, including China. Japan stands at a crossroads in the age of US decline as its post-war diplomacy is, in part, based on US dominance. During this period of power transition, several crucial questions must be asked. These questions are themselves controversial, as scholars have cast doubt on the very existence of a grand strategy or vision for the international order in post-war Japan. According to this argument, Japan lacked any political initiatives or strategies of its own and, instead, only incrementally and bureaucratically reacted to gaiatsu Calder, ; Lincoln,

These strategies are a result of a complex history and an uncertain future between the two states. The major pressures facing the Sino-Japanese relationship are heavily influenced by significant domestic legitimacy anxieties in both countries. Calling on this nationalist sentiment to improve domestic legitimacy means destabilising the bilateral relationship that is essential to resolving contemporary dilemmas. Despite these significant pressures and the requirement to make certain adjustments, there are strong mutual interests that work to preserve bilateral stability. The most important of these are a strong economic and strategic interdependence between Japan and China, and the presence of the United States and regional powers hoping to maintain the status quo. This essay will argue that adjustments need to be made to ensure domestic legitimacy concerns do not exploit existing pressures that would destabilise the Sino-Japanese relationship.
Japan and the Rise of China
Whatever happened to Japan? In the early s, the nation lost its status as an economic juggernaut— the model to emulate in industrial policy, management techniques, and product engineering—and found itself a beleaguered nation in its worst recession since World War II. The competitiveness debate of the s has petered out as the resurgent U. It is as if Japan, the eager pupil of U. In the wake of this astonishingly rapid transformation, it is time to reexamine the Japanese economic miracle. Has it exhausted its system? Or is the system a coherent whole, as many have argued, and thus difficult to emulate?

By Kenneth B. Public Affairs, New York, Kenneth Pyle has done the seemingly impossible: he has taken the grand sweep of Japanese diplomatic history, from the Tokugawa period to today, with all its trials and tribulations, magnificent triumphs and terrible reversals, and produced a powerful narrative that is at once coherent and illuminating. Moreover, he has done so while writing in a style that is simultaneously accessible to those who are uninitiated in the intricacies of Japanese history yet still sufficiently erudite so that even the expert reader will learn much that is new.

Прикрыв рукой глаза, он выругался и встал возле собора в маленьком дворике, образованном высокой каменной стеной, западной стороной башни Гиральда и забором из кованого железа. За открытыми воротами виднелась площадь, на которой не было ни души, а за ней, вдали, - стены Санта-Круса.
