"Japan's Nuclear Disarmament and the U.S. Security Umbrella is a good guide to understand how the A-bombed country [Japan]'syearning for nuclear abolition has beencompromised by Tokyo's U.S.-centered security policy, whose top priority is to notharmthe myth of American nuclear deterrence." - Motofumi Asai, Director, Hiroshima Peace Institute"DiFilippo's laborious and thoughtful work raises an important question: How can the international community save the Government of Japan (GoJ) as a key player for nuclear disarmament? This book pinpoints the 'ensuing struggles between cultural pacifism, emergent nationalism, and ongoing pressure from Washington' in the GoJ's balancing act in its slippery stance toward nuclear disarmament. With ample illustrative stories, DiFilippo's analyses of the driving forces working Japanese politics give readers clues to further actions and events for effective use of the Japan card to the cause of nuclear disarmament." - Hiromichi Umebayashi, Ph.D., Founder and President of the Peace Depot, Yokohama, Japan
