Peace in Northeast Asia

Resolving Japan’s Territorial and Maritime Disputes with China, Korea and the Russian Federation

Thomas J. Schoenbaum

This book takes an in-depth look at Japan’s long-festering territorial and maritime disputes with its three neighbors – China, South Korea and the Russian Federation. Japan has established friendly relations with all three former adversaries since the end of World War II, but these sovereignty issues remain. All three disagreements have recently flared into potentially violent incidents that could erupt again at any time. The book explores each situation and proposes concrete compromise solutions to each of the outstanding disputes.
