"In [these] crisp, provocative essays, leading specialists ... place the tense diplomatic chess match that culminated at Pearl Harbor under the historical microscope." —Choice

Excerpt

As will readily be observed by the careful reader of this volume, most of the essays show ways in which diplomacy was somehow short- circuited in the profusion and confusion of words and events preceding Pearl Harbor. In general, since Ambassador Nomura and others in the Japanese government, probably including Premier Konoe and even the emperor himself, wanted peace, or at least a modus vivendi with the United States, it should have been possible for American diplomats, who presumably wanted peace also, to find a way to at least postpone hostilities, perhaps indefinitely.
