ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

This manuscript was made possible initially by a grant from the Smith Richardson Foundation, and I am grateful to Program Officer Allan Song and the proposal reviewers for their valuable feedback, which helped shape the project concept from the beginning. The nearly four-year process of research, dialogue, reflection, writing, editing, and publication was also supported generously by the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. At Carnegie I am especially thankful to Asia Program Vice President Doug Paal, whose good sense, keen insight, and unwavering support provided the perfect environment to pursue this policy study.

I could not have completed this effort without the high-quality research assistance I received from Carnegie junior fellows Cory McKenzie, David Song, and Anna Bammerlin and research assistant Chihiro Shikata. Cory, in particular, served as the Japan junior fellow during the most intense period of research and writing, and his many contributions are greatly appreciated. The support infrastructure at Carnegie has been fantastic and includes Alex Taylor, Nick Parrott, Jocelyn Soly, Courtney Griffith, Samuel Brase, and many others.

I am also extremely grateful to reviewers of the manuscript at various stages of production, who provided valuable insight, advice, corrections, and moral support. They are Rust Deming, Ben Self, Doug Paal, Vikram Nehru, and Nick Wright. They also include friends at the Japan Institute for International Affairs in Tokyo and Doshisha University in Kyoto, who arranged productive peer review sessions in Japan, as well as participants in our Carnegie-internal Research in Progress seminar.

Because this text draws on my broader career involved with Japan since the end of the Cold War, I also feel a need to express general gratitude to the countless friends, colleagues, homestay families, and interviewees who have taught me so much over the past thirty years, making this journey so enriching and enjoyable.

I would like to dedicate this manuscript to all of the educators in my life, beginning with my parents and including all of those in academia and athletics who gave of themselves to teach and to inspire a lifetime of never-ending learning.

As an editorial note, Japanese names in the text are written in the Western convention, with the family name appearing second.
