AJISS-Commentary No. 191: “Our Sense of Uneasiness about America” by Nakayama Toshihiro

by , 25 Feb 2014 | in periodicals | no comments yet

The Association of Japanese Institutes of Strategic Studies (AJISS) has just published the AJISS-Commentary No. 191  "Our Sense of Uneasiness about America" by Nakayama Toshihiro,  professor of US politics and foreign policy at Aoyama Gakuin University, and Visiting Fellow at The Japan Institute of International Affairs. 

Has the US turned inward-looking? In a certain sense, the advent of the Obama administration could be considered a sign of such a turn. Indeed, one of the objectives stated by the Obama administration was a course correction away from the excessive intervention of the Bush era. Shaken by the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the US veered sharply onto a course of intervention to eliminate that threat. Many Americans undoubtedly had in the backs of their minds questions about whether this course had made the US safer or simply deepened the chasm with the international community as they elected Obama to pursue a new approach to relations with the rest of the world.
