Book Number: 51092
John Murray May 9, 2005  2005  8vo softcover 480pp very good+. index illustrated black & white photos. In the years and months leading up to Pearl Harbor, Japan was becoming the most industrialized state in Asia as well as the repository of a feudal heritage that fueled imperial ambitions of conquest and hegemony. Across the Pacific, the United States was emerging from the depression and again growing into its role as a global power. Today s partnership between modern Japan now Asia s most well-developed democracy and the United States the world s sole superpower was forged by the confrontation, and finally the reconciliation, of these two competing agendas and cultures in World War II, personified by two men: General Douglas MacArthur and Emperor Hirohito.
