About this title


Ever since Commodore Perry sailed into Uraga Channel, relations between the United States and Japan have been characterized by culture shock. Now a distinguished Japanese historian critically analyzes contemporary thought, public opinion, and behavior in the two countries over the course of the twentieth century, offering a binational perspective on culture shock as it has affected their relations. In these essays, Sadao Asada examines the historical interaction between these two countries from 1890 to 2006, focusing on naval strategy, transpacific racism, and the atomic bomb controversy. For each topic, he offers a rigorous analysis of both American and Japanese perceptions, showing how cultural relations and the interchange of ideas have been complex and occasionally destructive.

About the Author:

Sadao Asada is Professor Emeritus of Diplomatic History at Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan. His Japanese-American Relations between the Wars (in Japanese) won the coveted Yomiuri Yoshino Sakuzo Book Prize. For his essays, he has been awarded the Edward S. Miller History Prize by the U.S. Naval War College and the Louis Knott Koontz Memorial Award by the American Historical Association.
