International History, History of British Politics and Diplomacy

Research Topic

My main research interest includes the following subjects; International history of the Twentieth Century, especially: the history of Anglo-American and European-American relations, the history of European integration and the history of Imperial disintegration. What I aim to do in my research is to reconstruct the process of the making of contemporary Western society in political and economic sense, using archival materials as primary sources.
I am currently working on a JSPS subsidized research project titled, 'The Boundaries of the Cold War' as a project manager. My most recent publication is a book on political and diplomatic history of the Western World between 1871-2012.(Published in Japanese only).
