Summary "This book traces the evolution of transnational relations between subnational public authorities in Hokkaido and Sakhalin, examining the relationship between these ties and the Russo-Japanese territorial dispute." "Drawing upon a wealth of primary and secondary sources from both countries, this book utilises levels of analysis and an analytical framework that incorporates national and subnational, as well as governmental and non-governmental forces to discuss a relatively unexplored aspect of Russo-Japanese relations. As such, Resolving the Russo-Japanese Territorial Dispute will appeal to students and scholars of Asian politics, international relations and post-communist states."--BOOK JACKET.
