Correa, E. Shan, Ed.
This book provides a compilation of addresses and panel presentations from the 1995 International Symposium of Japan-America Societies. Twenty-nine eminent speakers and presenters, authorities on topics ranging from economics to education, shared dialogue with delegates who gathered for the first-ever meeting of members of Japan-America Societies from both sides of the Pacific. The introductory materials and overview contain the observations of the editor, compiled from notes taken during the conference and supplemented by audiotapes provided by Simul International. The second section of the Proceedings contains the documents of those presenting the keynote addresses and panel sessions, which were the substance of the Symposium. The seven panel session topics (with presenters) included: (1) "Japan and America, 1945-1995: Peace, Progress, Partnership" (Robert Scalapino; Yukio Matsuyama; Akira Iriye; Nagayo Homma); (2) "The U.S.-Japan Relationship and Security in Asia" (James Auer; Yukio Okamoto; James Kelly; Ryosei Kokubun); (3) "Education: Critical Issues and New Directions" (Yasunori Nishijima; Gene Carter; Shinkichi Eto); (4) "Public Safety: Crime and Justice" (Sabrina McKenna; Atsuyuki Sassa; Lynn Curtis; Yukiko Tsunoda); (5) "Aging: Responsibility and Cost" (Robert Friedland; Mikio Kawa; Thomas Mahoney; Kazunori Yamanoi); (6) "Seeking a Better Life: Challenges of International Migration" (Wayne Cornelius; Haruo Shimada; Glen Krebs; Yasuaki Onuma); and (7) "Easing Economic Tensions" (Glen Fukushima; Kazuo Nukazawa; Sozaburo Okamatsu; Seiji Naya).
