Why does the Japanese government often alter its course of action under pressure from the United States, even when doing so apparently undermines Japan's own interests? In Limits to Power, Akitoshi Miyashita employs five case studies to chart an answer to this question. His findings challenge current arguments that Japan has successfully distanced itself from "reactive" politics.
Akitoshi Miyashita is Associate Professor of International Relations at Tokyo International University. He is co-editor of Japanese Foreign Policy in Asia and the Pacific: Domestic Interests, American Pressure, and Regional Integration (2001).
