No signatures. Dust-jacket protected in archival mylar cover.; xxix, [3], 260 pages. Grey boards with red lettering on spine. Page dimensions: 227 x 150mm. Text in English, translated from Japanese by Mark Ealey. This title was originally written in Japanese in 1993, and updated by the author in 2005. "This book provides an answer to the mystery of why no peace treaty has yet been signed between Japan and Russia after more than sixty years since the end of World War Two. The author, a leading authority on Japanese-Russian diplomatic history, was trained at the Russian Institute of Columbia University. This volume contributes to our understanding of not only the intricacies of bilateral relations between Moscow and Tokyo, but, more generally, of Russia's and Japan's modes of foreign policy formation. The author also discusses the U.S. factor, which helped make Russia and Japan distant neighbors, and the threat from China, which might help these countries come closer in the near future."
