Japan is the key US ally in Asia, in a new presidential era when the role of allies is being called into question. As the third largest economy in the world and one of the world’s largest military spenders, what role will Japan play in US Asia policy and in regional affairs?  Prof. Andrew Oros will seek to answer these questions in relation to his new book, Japan’s Security Renaissance: New Policies and Politics for the 21st Century.

Andrew Oros is Professor of Political Science and International Studies; Director of International Studies at Washington College, Maryland. He is a specialist on the international and comparative politics of East Asia and the advanced industrial democracies, with an emphasis on contending approaches to managing security and on the linkage between domestic and international politics. He is the author of Japan’s Security Renaissance: New Policies and Politics for the 21st Century (Columbia University Press, 2017) and Normalizing Japan: Politics, Identity, and the Evolution of Security Practice (Stanford University Press, 2008).
