Summary "In Japan Rising, Kenneth B. Pyle explores the remarkable history of Japan's shifting foreign policy over the last 150 years. He identifies the common threads that bind the divergent strategies of modern Japan, arguing that few countries in recent history have been as responsive to the forces of the international environment. As we enter the new century and Japan once again changes course, the implications for our alliance and the balance of power in Asia are huge. Japan Rising is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand how Japan arrived at this moment - and what to expect in the future."--BOOK JACKET.
