PUBLISHERHarvard University Press
CITYCambridge, MA

This book presents the views of the antogonists in the struggle between Japan and the United States in the Pacific during World War II in an attempt to show how both sides perceived their own actions and the war itself. The author, who consulted Japanese archives, writes about the relations between the two countries and what those relations show about their cultures. He details the events and forces that led to the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese, and he covers the objectives of both sides throughout the course of the war. The book closes by describing the rapprochement between the two counties and their relationship in the immediate post-war period.
