Course Description

This course is designed to introduce upper level undergraduates to the foreign and domestic determinants of Japanese foreign policy-making and international relations from the beginning of the modern era (1868) to the present. We will address a wide range of issues, including the Sino-Japanese and Russo-Japanese wars, the Pacific War, the Japanese foreign policy-making process, postwar trade and security relations between Japan and the U.S., Japan’s role in Asia, and the implications of the ongoing nuclear crisis in North Korea for Japan. Since this is a writing component class, students will be required to write -in consultation with the instructor- a 18-20 page research paper on a topic of their choice.
