Japanese Foreign Policy in Asia and the Pacific provides a broad framework for examining Japan's foreign policy. Leading scholars look at convergence and divergence of interests among Japanese and American policy actors, governmental and non-governmental, as well as domestic and transnational actors. The contributors examine the role of US pressure and its interaction with Japan's domestic and Japan-based transnational actors' interests through geographically and thematically focused case studies on foreign aid, economic policy, and military security.
