JUMP hosted a discussion and book rollout with Prof. Naoyuki Agawa and Adm. Tomohisa Takei on March 15. This event for JUMP members was held at the Army and Navy Club on Farragut Square in Washington, D.C.

Prof. Agawa discussed his book, Friendship across the Seas: The US Navy and the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force. The book describes the development of the Japan Maritime Self Defense Force in the post-World War II era, with particular emphasis on the positive nature of its relationship with the U.S. Navy. Previously released in Japan, Prof. Agawa’s book was well-received by the Japanese public and by Japan’s leaders across the political spectrum. The first English-language version of the book, however, has just been released. Registrants received a copy of the book.

Adm. Takei joined Prof. Agawa to discuss the JMSDF-USN relationship and answered questions from the audience.

Coffee, tea, and a light breakfast was served.
