Escalating Challenge and Response

Author: Rodger Swearingen

Pages: 372

The Soviet Union and Postwar Japan is a magisterial survey of the problems—ideological, political, cultural, diplomatic, economic, and military—which exist between these two major powers. It is based upon Professor Swearingen's unusual first-hand knowledge of this area and issues, drawing upon his service with the U.S. State Department, his work of fourteen years as an analyst for the RAND Corporation, and his comprehensive familiarity with the technical and often inaccessible specialized documentation on Japanese-Russian relations. His findings are lucidly presented, and are supplemented by summaries or the full text of treaties, many of them not previously published in English. This book will prove invaluable not only to students of international relations, Soviet foreign policy, and recent Japanese history, but to adventurous and inquiring minds in teaching, government service, business, and journalism-in short, to all those who seek an authoritative, yet fascinating guide to crucial and complex issues. General readers, as well, will derive information and insights from Professor Swearingen's perceptive and highly readable book.
