Abstract:

Rapid evolution of the political situation in East Asia, largely as a result of U.S. actions under the Nixon Doctrine, has raised a number of questions about Japanese diplomatic and security policies and about the US-Japan relationship. The paper examines statements and views of Japanese officials and influential defense affairs analysts in order to deduce what U.S. actions and policy adjustments are needed or desirable. The data was drawn from available Japanese and American newspapers, periodicals and monographs, from an interview with a prominent Japanese defense analyst, and from the authors own notes and background information accumulated in Japan 1960-69.
