HIST 3790 - World War II in American and Japanese History

This course presents parallel versions of the issues and events of World War II in Japan and the United States. The two nations are treated separately within their own domestic and international contexts. The war is placed in the broadest possible perspective to include not only the road to and from Pearl Harbor, but also the meaning and impact of the war on the social, political, and intellectual life in the two countries through the 20th century.
