"Rising Sun in the New West"

Magazine or Newspaper Article, American Interest, issue 5, volume 7

By Mayumi Fukushima, Richard N. Rosecrance, Adjunct Professor; International Security Program; Director, Project on U.S.-China Relations and Yuzuru Tsuyama

As Europe and the United States cope with their difficulties, and as problems in China, India, Russia and elsewhere emerge more clearly, Japan is very likely to join a renascent West.
