The Currents of War

University Press of Kentucky

Chapter 5, Sinners in the Hands of an Angry Department, focuses on the American decision to forego diplomatic engagement with Japan from 1937 to mid-1941 and considers the reasons for, and consequences of, this decision. Special attention is devoted to American opposition to either a mediated end to Sino-Japanese hostilities or cooperative diplomacy with the Abe or Yonai cabinets, as well as the failure of the first round of Hull-Nomura talks in the winter and spring of 1941. This chapter also considers the growing divergence between the generally uncompromising policies of Secretary of State Cordell Hull and the far more flexible, realistic policies advocated by Joseph C. Grew, U.S. ambassador to Japan.
