This text analyzes US-Japan relations amidst the changing nature of power and international relations. Chapters explore the relative successes and shortcomings of American liberalism and Japanese neomercantilism, the bilateral trade duels over finance, high technology and agriculture, and the costs and benefits of foreign investment and military spending. The book concludes with suggestions for a systemic and radical overhaul of American policies toward itself, the global economy, and Japan. William R. Nester has also written "Japan's Growing Power Over East Asia and the World Economy", "The Foundations of Japanese Power", "Japanese Industrial Targeting", and "Japan and the Third World".
