3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Meow Tomcat on February 25, 2012
Format: Paperback
Not with jackboots but with humanity Douglas MacArthur (1880- 1964) pushed Japan into an era of freedom and democratic rights. As Supreme Commander of Occupied Japan from 1945- 1952, MacArthur put economic recovery a first step before freedom and democracy. And he had the cooperation of the Japanese people by respecting Japan's imperial institutions. The author, who served in occupied Japan as a young diplomat, looks at the relationship between Douglas MacArthur and the Japanese prime minister Yoshida Shigeru. This is original scholarship supported by almost a hundred interviews. This is the main contribution.

In an effort to be balanced, as explained in his introduction, the author, unfortunately, writes without passion. This is fence sitting and boring without considering human elements such as character and the clashing and meshing of personalities. And this book is not for the reader who wants an overall picture of what happened during the MacArthur's Japanese Occupation.
