Description:

The paper outlines the events that led up to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and America's entry into World War II. The paper looks at the poor communication between Washington and Tokyo and contends that the main lesson is that it is imperative for leaders to maximize dialogue in conflict resolution, so that they will never be put in a predicament where they will have to settle their disputes using arms.

From the Paper:

"The attack on Pearl Harbor was described by US President Franklin Roosevelt as a "day of infamy". The statement basically sums up the sentiments of Americans during that time, from a historical perspective the attack on Pearl Harbor is a manifestation of power relationships in the international arena between the United States and Japan and their failure to achieve a consensus that could have prevented their clash in World War II. It is noteworthy to analyze the lessons that can be learned from the events of Pearl Harbor, that these lessons transcend more than the military failure of the US to anticipate the attack but to address the root cause of why the attack happened in the first place."
