Named ambassador to Japan in 1961, Edwin Reischauer had an immense influence in shaping U.S.-Japan relations that can be felt even today. As one of the foremost leaders in founding East Asian studies as a discipline in the United States, Reischauer’s scholarly vision forms the foundation of much of what has been written about Japan in the previous half century. George R. Packard, President of the United States-Japan Foundation, discusses Edwin O. Reischauer and The American Discovery of Japan.

Moderated by Merit Janow, Professor, International Economic Law & International Affairs, Columbia University; Director, Japan Society.
