Le Japon et la Chine : amour, haine et géostratégie

Abstract : Japan and China : Love, Hatred, and Geo-Strategy - Sino-Japanese relations bear the imprint of eighteen centuries of ambiguity, and the trauma of a devastating war. This impassioned context puis Tokyo on the defensive. In any hypothesis, China's development constitutes a threat to Japan, which stands by helpless. Likewise, Japan's options are few compared with China's military might. A patient three-pronged strategy (some form of contain-ment, tying China into multilateral networks, and confidence-building) seems the most appropriate over time. But the time factor may turn out to be crucial, given the volatility of the situation in China.
