Japan and the United States in Asia-Pacific: The Challenges for Japan in Asia
Final Report of the Shimoda '94, October 5–8, 1994
Charles E. Morrison, with Harry Harding; foreword by Tadashi Yamamoto and Daniel Sharp

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.

This publication contains the final report, in both English and Japanese, of the Shimoda '94, the second in a series of three conferences dealing with Asia Pacific issues in the Japan-U.S. relationship. Also included in the volume is a list of conference participants from the United States, Japan, and Asia Pacific. The report explores the issues discussed at the conference, including economic cooperation and conflict and regional security issues.
