ACKGROUND:
 
In 1603, after decades of civil warfare, the Tokugawa shogunate (a military-led,dynastic government) ushered in a long period of relative political stability and isolationfrom foreign influence. For more than two centuries this policy enabled Japan to enjoy aflowering of its indigenous culture. Japan opened its ports after signing the Treaty of Kanagawa with the US in 1854 and began to intensively modernize and industrialize. Duringthe late 19th and early 20th centuries, Japan became a regional power that was able todefeat the forces of both China and Russia. It occupied Korea, Formosa (Taiwan), andsouthern Sakhalin Island. In 1931-32 Japan occupied Manchuria, and in 1937 it launched afull-scale invasion of China. Japan attacked US forces in 1941 - triggering America's entryinto World War II - and soon occupied much of East and Southeast Asia. After its defeat inWorld War II Japan recovered to become an economic power and an ally of the US Whilethe emperor retains his throne as a symbol of national unity, elected politicians hold actualdecision-making power. Following three decades of unprecedented growth, Japan'seconomy experienced a major slowdown starting in the 1990s, but the country remains amajor economic power. In January 2009, Japan assumed a nonpermanent seat on the UNSecurity Council for the 2009-10 terms.
