Appeared in Choice on 2004-11-01:
This study is an exercise in what Braddick (Musashi Univ., Tokyo) calls an international political history of East Asia. He sees this approach as combining international history, international relations, and Asian politics to provide an empirically based but multidisciplinary study of the implications of the Sino-Soviet Alliance for Japan and its relationship with the US. Each chapter provides a narration of events in one of several areas, including Japan's public debate over the Sino-Soviet Alliance and the country's trade policies with the two communist states. This narrative is then followed by "interpretive comments" on, among other matters, Japanese belief systems, the country's decision-making process, and official policy. This mechanical division between facts and arguments is neither wholly satisfying nor convincing, but those hoping to learn something about the implications of the Sino-Soviet Alliance in the 1950s and 1960s will find much to digest here. ^BSumming Up: Recommended.
