Barnes, D. ORCID: 0000-0002-2814-5100 (2014). Plans and Expectations: The American News Media and Postwar Japan. Japanese Studies, 34(3), pp. 325-342. doi: 10.1080/10371397.2014.953920


This article examines popular representations of Japan and China before and during the war, assesses the ideas of key figures from the press, and considers the ways in which media and policy interacted through the influence of opinion leaders. These prepared the way for the ‘soft’ peace relying on Japanese cooperation that would become the basis for a new alliance between America and Japan.
