Japan and the United States in Asia Pacific: The Challenges for Japan in Asia
Background Papers for the Shimoda '94
Tadashi Yamamoto and Charles E. Morrison, editors

The Japan-U.S. relationship is undeniably one of the most important bilateral relationships in the post-cold war era, but it is a relationship that can no longer be appropriately defined by Japanese or Americans alone or bilaterally. Changes in the relationship directly affect other countries in the Asia Pacific region, and, conversely, events in other Asia Pacific countries affect the bilateral relationship.

The papers in this volume were prepared as background materials for the Shimoda '94, the second in a series of three conferences dealing with Asia Pacific issues in the Japan-U.S. relationship. The Shimoda '94 looks at the region from the Japanese point of view, evaluating Japan's foreign policy challenges in Asia Pacific today. The papers examine such issues as Japan's often turbulent relationship with Korea, the U.S.-China-Japan trilateral relationship, security in East Asia, and economic cooperation and conflict.
