Chapter Summary

Japan's foreign policy agenda had consisted primarily of such political issues as the Peace Treaty, the Soviet Union, the United Nations, the Security Treaty with America, South Korea, and Okinawa. They were aimed at bringing Japan back as a normal member of the international community and implemented with considerable tension between the realists in the government and the passive pacifists in the opposition. During the 60's trade friction had hardly appeared as a major political issue between Japan and the United States. The successful resolution of the textile issue and the respective success of Japan and America in overcoming the oil crisis brought bilateral economic relations to a lull. Three sectors clearly triggered the trade friction, steel, colour televisions and automobiles. It is very important to note that these three sectors were, in substance and in perception, the most important in postwar American economic development and affluence.
