TODAY on Cover to Cover:
Sheila Smith on
Japan Rearmed

Register now for WACA’s 
Cover to Cover conference call
June 19 at 2:00-2:30 pm ET, featuring 
Sheila Smith, Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. Smith will discuss her recent book: 
Japan Rearmed: The Politics of Military Power.
Japan’s U.S.-imposed postwar constitution renounced the use of offensive military force, but, as Smith shows, a nuclear North Korea and an increasingly assertive China have the Japanese rethinking that commitment, and their reliance on United States security. In 
Japan Rearmed, Smith argues that Japan is not only responding to increasing threats from North Korean missiles and Chinese maritime activities but also reevaluating its dependence on the United States. No longer convinced that they can rely on Americans to defend Japan, Tokyo’s political leaders are now confronting the possibility that they may need to prepare the nation’s military for war.
