As far as certain other observers were concerned, Japan’s new international position was seen more darkly as a negative challenge: this time, its economic prowess appeared as a deliberate strategy of mercantilist ‘free riding’ on the back of the established economic, political and security order maintained by the other major industrialized powers, especially the US (Prestowitz 1988). In other cases, the Japanese state and its transnational corporations (TNCs) were viewed as essentially devoid of any clear policy direction as international actors.
Thus, it would seem that at the start of the new millennium Japan has returned to a central, and possibly dominant, position within the East Asia region as a political, economic and security player and organizer. iii Europe In contrast to the situation with the US and East Asia, Japan’s relations with Europe have elicited little attention from either political or academic observers for most of the postwar era. Europe as understood here refers primarily to the twenty-five member states of the European Union (EU) (namely, in order of accession, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxemburg, The Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, the UK, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Austria, Finland, Sweden, and from 2004, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia).
