Reviews

"Pash's work represents a new wave of scholarship examining Japanese-U.S. relations, as well as World War II in Asia."—G. Kurt Piehler, Florida State University

"Pash is not content to write traditional narrative diplomatic history in his ambitious and compelling study of U.S-Japanese relations from the late 19th Century to the outbreak of the Pacific War in 1941. Instead, he writes 'revisionist' history in the best sense of the word—as a cautionary tale of mistakes and lessons that should not be repeated but often are."—J. Garry Clifford, University of Connecticut

"This fascinating book gives insight into the competitive relationship between the United States and Japan from 1899–1941."—The Lone Star Book Review

"This is a well-written book that examines the decades-long U.S. effort at containing Japanese continental expansion."—Journal of Military History

"This sharply argued and well-researched book is quite timely. [. . .] Sidney Pash's detailed analysis of US-Japanese relations from 1899-1941 explores the conflicts and, more importantly, the principles that created those memories. This important contribution wraps an imaginative, detailed study of US-Japanese relations during an epoch within a broader analysis of both the global context and the series of broad US policy principles, or pillars. It is a major reformulation of a historic relationship that Asians and Americans now remember as ending in devastation."—Historian
