Leiden: Martinus Nijhoff, (2013), isbn 978-90-04-25542-5 (hardback), 978-90-04-25543-2 (e-book), 209 pp., us $ 131.00. eu –Japan Relations, 1970-2012: From Confrontation to Global Partnership .

These are two new books on Japan, very different in style, but with one thing in common: they both point out the importance of looking at Japan to gain clues as to what will happen in our globalized world. Japan’s past and future development, especially at the nexus of diplomacy, politics and economics, is of relevance not only to North-East Asia but also to Europe. It is something that Europeans need to relate to and learn from if they want to have a say in the way the world will be governed in the twenty-first century.
