Book Reviews The authors argue thatJapanese antisemitism clouds its understanding of its relationship with the United States, the Middle East, and other nations and stood in the way of a coherent response to the Gulf War. They conclude by saying that Japan must deal with its ethnic hatreds and fears in order to be able to make intelligent foreign policy.
