American policy toward occupied Japan was not, as myth would have it, simply an extension of the mind and personality of General Douglas MacArthur. It was, as this excellent study demonstrates, shaped by an array of people representing conflicting viewpoints and different segments of American society and government. The book's chapters, all deeply researched in American sources, deal with MacArthur, Joseph C. Grew, T. A. Bisson, James S. Killen, Harry F. Kern, William H. Draper, Jr., Joseph M. Dodge and John Foster Dulles.
