  • Abstract

    This study examines attitudes of the Japanese toward the United States and attitudes of Americans toward Japan. Japanese respondents were questioned about their government, the United States, trade policies of Japan and the United States, and their attitudes towards work. They were also asked about the products from the United States they would like to have, their experiences in World War II, and their political knowledge of the United States. Respondents in the United States were surveyed regarding their attitudes towards Japan and Germany, Reagan, and United States-Japan trade policies. They were asked to evaluate Japanese products, compare Japanese and American industry, and give their opinions on tax reform and major league baseball. In addition, American respondents provided information on their political knowledge of Japan and the United States and gave their opinions on events during World War II and on the lasting effects of World War II on attitudes about Japan. Respondents in both countries were asked for demographic information.
