In A Place for Apology, author Shu Kishida examines America's foreign policy strategies with Japan. The author contemplates whether or not Japan is America's satellite nation, a question on the mind of many Japanese. Professor Kishida contends that the problematic pattern of American denial and repression of guilt led to an unsuccessful American occupation of Japan after World War II and the disastrous effect of the Tokyo War Tribunal on the Japanese psyche.
Shu Kishida is a professor at Wako University, Tokyo, Japan. Yukiko Tanaka lectures on Japanese culture (in English) for Kokusai Koken Juku (International Relationship Seminars) in Tokyo, Japan. Tanaka holds a doctoral in Comparative Literature from the University of California, Los Angeles.
