From the back of the book:

Over the past two hundred years, and especially in the present century, Americans have developed a special, turbulent, even violent, love-hate relationship with East Asia. Three experts on the America-East Asian experience explore the development and future of that relationship.

The result of their joint endeavor is a unique achievement. It is the first post-1970s, post-Vietnam, and post-China recognitions interpretation of the American encounter with East Asian civilization--encompassing China, Japan, the Philippines, Korea, and Vietnam. The record of that encounter, as told in this authoritative, comprehensive, and highly readable book, provides an invaluable background for understanding the crucial nature of our envolvement with and policy toward East Asia in the coming decades.
