About this book

In this book, American and Japanese experts examine to what extent diverging priorities in the U.S.-Japan alliance are real and whether they are not remedied with political and diplomatic leadership and other processes. American and Japanese authors are paired to analyze the same topic, where doing so is possible, for comparing their perspectives.

About the authors

Takashi Inoguchi is the president of the University of Niigata Prefecture and a professor emeritus of the University of Tokyo, Japan.

Reviews

"The US-Japan Security Alliance provides an excellent and up-to-date effort to think through the US-Japan relationship, and how the latter country is to fit into an Asia increasingly dominated by a rising China.The chapters of this book examine the problem from multiple perspectives and suggest pathways to new security architectures in Northeast Asia." - Francis Fukuyama, Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, Stanford University

"Although there are several books about the U.S.-Japan security alliance, few look at it equally from the perspective of both countries, or in the broader framework of the alliance s relationships with other important nations in the region. This volume does both. Most welcome too is a particular consideration for how the "alliance dilemma" of Japan s fear of entrapment versus abandonment has played out over time, and how complicated regional and domestic factors are affecting the "ambiguities" that used to help sustain the alliance. This is a very useful book both for its comprehensive overview of the alliance in broader perspective and for its several in-depth case studies of the alliance and other nations in the region." - Ellis S. Krauss, School of International Relations and Pacific Studies, University of California, San Diego

'With political change in Japan, growing fiscal pressures on Washington and Tokyo, and new challenges from China and North Korea, we are primed for another redefinition of the U.S.-Japan alliance.Inoguchi, Ikenberry and Sato help to map the way with this collection of essays from some of the leading thinkers on Asian security and U.S.-Japan relations." - Michael J. Green, Georgetown University and the Center for Strategic and International Studies

"The durability of the U.S.-Japan alliance lies in its capacity to constantly redefine itself to adapt to the ever-changing security equation in Asia and beyond. This volume is amongst the first and no doubt the most far-reaching attempts to capture the role and mission the alliance is pursuing anew." - Shotaro Yachi, Former Vice-Minister at Japan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs
