Part I (1960-1976) "of this collection pulls together more than 2,000 primary source documents detailing the relationship between the United States and Japan during the formative years of their modern alliance. The documents ... include records of historic U.S.-Japanese summit meetings; communications between heads of state; top-level internal deliberations, including Nixon and Kissinger memoranda of conversation; memos, cables and studies concerning U.S. diplomatic relations with Japan; records concerning the U.S.-Japan security relationship; documents related to trade and international monetary relations with Japan; and intelligence estimates and studies concerning Japan's foreign policy objectives, military capabilities, economic policies and internal situation." Part II (1977-1992) of the collection contains 1,751 "documents that detail the impact of post-Cold War politics on Japan-U.S. relations. As Japan emerges from this period as an economic power in its own right, events such as the Lockheed and Watergate scandals challenge U.S.-Japan diplomatic and economic relations. With the fall of the Soviet regime, the diplomatic rational for the Japan-U.S. alliance is further tested. As lesser Cold-War adversaries, China and North Korea, and new regional and non-state based threats begin to challenge a unique North American "unipolar moment", Japan-U.S. relations are redefined. The NSA documents covering this period ... include documentation of summits between Presidents Carter, Reagan and Bush and their Japanese counterparts, policy reviews, internal assessments of various aspects of Japan's foreign, military and economic policies, and intelligence reports, as well as memoranda of conversation and diplomatic cables that provide an intimate view of the dynamics of the U.S.-Japan relationship"--Adapted from publisher's Web site

The CAESAR, POLO & ESAU papers : Cold War era hard target analysis of Soviet and Chinese policy and decision making, 1953-1973 by CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of declassified analytic monographs and reference aids, designated within the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Directorate of Intelligence (DI) as the CAESAR, ESAU, and POLO series, highlights the CIA's efforts from the 1950s through the mid-1970s to pursue in-depth research on Soviet and Chinese internal politics and Sino-Soviet relations. The documents reflect the views of seasoned analysts who had followed closely their special areas of research and whose views were shaped in often heated debate. Continuing public interest in the series, as reflected in numerous requests through Freedom of Information and Executive Order channels, led CIA's Office of Information Management Services (IMS) to conduct a search of Directorate of Intelligence record systems for documents in this series and then undertake a declassification review of all the documents we located. The 147 documents in this collection, amounting to over 11,000 pages of analysis, were written between 1953 and 1973. The collection includes a large number of newly declassified monographs as well as some studies that have been previously declassified and released to individual requesters. The continuing sensitivity of some documents in the series required that they be withheld from declassification
