"The best analysis to date of the roles and limits of foreign pressure in international negotiations. . . . develops a strong, sophisticated critique of U.S. economic dealings with Japan during the Bush and Clinton administrations. . . . deserves a wide audience on both sides of the Pacific."
--I.M. Destler, Center for International and Security Studies at Maryland
"This excellent study paints a rich picture of the intricacies of US-Japanese trade negotiations; the game theoretical approach provides valuable insights into those negotiations."
