'Few situations are at once so fraught and so fascinating as that between Japan and the two Koreas. Brian Bridges puts us all in his debt by this clear and concise yet comprehensive and insightful account of a relationship as ambivalent as it is close. Everyone with an interest in East Asia and World Affairs should read this book.' -- Aidan Foster-Carter, Leeds University Korea Project, Leeds, UK
'Bridges has written a very informative study of the complex triangular relationship between North Korea, South Korean, and Japan.' -- J. M. Peek, Choice
'Japan and Korea in the 1990s is in many ways a triumph. . . . a first-rate analysis of Japan-Korea relations.' -- Robert J. Webber, Millennium
'Oddly enough, given the long-standing nature of the issue and its recognised importance in the study of contemporary East Asian politics and strategy, Bridges' book is the first full-length account of the subject in English.' -- Jim Hoare, Foreign and Commonwealth Office
'The author is to be congratulated for providing a timely and perceptive study of Japanese-Korean relations. The book is written in a clear narrative style, marked by an absence of post-modernist esoteric jargon, makes excellent use of a wide range of sources, both Japanese and Korean and offers a balanced analysis of a complex and multi-layered relationship.' -- Michael Weiner, Asian Affairs
'All in all, the book under review is a very competent and readable study of one of the most important triangular relationships in the world today. It can also serve as a useful introduction to the international relations of Northeast Asia, arguably the most dynamic region in the world.' -- B.C. Koh, Journal of Japanese Studies
