The Eagle And The Rising Sun: America And Japan In The Twentieth Century
The Eagle And The Rising Sun: America And Japan In The Twentieth Century
By John K. Emmerson and Harrison M. Holland
Addison-Wesley, 1989, 199 pp.

This book by two former career diplomats with extensive experience in Japan is clearly written, comprehensive in its scope, and probably the best available short introduction to the bilateral U.S.-Japanese relationship. There are solid chapters on the early contacts, the trade problem, the defense relationship, Japan's investments in the United States and Japan's foreign policy.
