After suffering crushing military defeats in 1945, both Japan and Germany have again achieved positions of economic dominance and political influence. Yet neither seeks to regain its former military power; on the contrary, antimilitarism has become so deeply rooted in the Japanese and German national psyches that even such questions as participation in international peacekeeping forces are met with widespread domestic opposition. In Cultures of Antimilitarism: National Security in Germany and Japan Thomas Berger analyzes the complex domestic and international political forces that brought about this unforeseen transformation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Thomas Berger not only makes an important new contribution to our understanding of national security and defense planning in those countries, but also does a great service to the scholarly community by showing that cultural theory remains a viable methodology for the study of war. -- Douglas A. Borer * Perspectives on Political Science *
An important academic achievement. -- Kazuhiko Noguchi * Social Science Japan Journal *
A remarkable documentation of these two quite different cultures, one European and the other Asian, which experienced varying political pressures, but which agreed to remain demilitarized and unaggressive. -- Ed Peterson * H-German, H-Net Reviews *
