Japanese and Americans: a Century of Cultural Relations
Japanese and Americans: a Century of Cultural Relations
By Robert S. Schwantes
Harper (for the Council on Foreign Relations), 1955, 380 pp.

In this well-informed study Mr. Schwantes proceeds from the American and the Japanese image of the other nation to a consideration of economic, ideological, educational, literary and artistic influences and cross-currents over the last century. Approaching the subject as a historian, the author gives much emphasis to present-day Japanese-American cultural relations and to their prospects for the future.
