This work examines the critical postwar period of 1945-1952, during which years two formidable and recent Pacific enemies-the victorious U.S. and the vanquished Japan-worked out the parameters of their postwar relationship. The author here focuses on one of the most articulate and insightful (yet overlooked) segments of American media: the business press. This well researched and readable volume discusses the important international relationship as it evolved during a crucial period in recent world history.

There is a lesson in Hilgenberg's book for today's politicians, business leaders, and journalists. By looking at how Japan was rebuilt, we possibly can see how some problems could be avoided as America seeks to invest in newly formed countries.--Arthur E. Barbeau, West Liberty State College "Journalism History "
