Michael Schaller supplies the historical background to show how the US transformed Japan from enemy to ally, covering the crucial years from 1945 to 1973 in which Japan emerged as a regional and global economic power. Schaller focuses on political, strategic, and economic relations, illuminating the connections between America's early trade policies toward Japan and the desire to secure the country as a bulwark against Communism in Asia.
