Abstract : The General Inquirer system of content analysis was used to study the records of five Japanese Imperial Conferences between September 1940 and December 1941. The results suggest that the leaders of Japan did not perceive the United States to be weak and passive, but rather as strong and active. Nevertheless, they decided on war. Moreover, Japanese leaders did not perceive their Axis allies, Germany and Italy, as being high in affect, potency and activity. The evidence suggests that Japanese leaders did not particularly esteem their allies. (Author)
