Re: Critical Reaction to Zimm's Attack on Pearl Harbor?

Regarding historiography and the global context: The importance of the international context and developments in Europe to the origins of the war in Asia and the Pacific is a central theme in the work of Akira Iriye (e.g., The Origins of the Second World War in Asia & the Pacific, Longman, 1987). This perspective has certainly shaped my understanding of the subject and how I teach it. European affairs had a major impact on decisions being made in Japan on what foreign policy was in the empire’s best interests and, relatedly, affected the balance of political power inside Japan.
