Some Aussie perspectives on the US-Japan alliance

My friend and colleague Harry White recently wrote about the US-Japan alliance and the Senkaku Islands.  I’ve recently replied with some thoughts of my own.

For those thinking about alliance issues such as these, I’d highly recommend Alliance Politics by Glenn H. Snyder.  For those really keen on expanding their intellectual horizons, Conflict Among Nations by Snyder and Diesing is also worth a read.
