This collection of papers addresses the special problems the Pacific poses for policy makers, strategists, and historians alike. War and Diplomacy Across the Pacific, 1919-1952 examines the technical operational issues that were discussed by those intent on the exercise of influence over the enormous distances the region entails, as well as conceptual issues concerning the relevance or utility of military applications in regions where the protagonists differed even in their most fundamental cultural and philosophical values. The authors address the issues of the Pacific from the points of view of the major naval powers—Great Britain, the United States, Germany, Japan—and Canada as an emerging power.
Contributors include James Leutze, Peter Lowe, John Chapman, Nobuya Bamba, Thomas Buell, and Arthur Menzies.
