英語 長文の和訳を教えてください。

japan was no longer the quaint exotic country that the occupiers had seen, it was "japan, inc" as newspapers and weekly news magazines became flooded with information about the japanese economy and work habits, americans began to perceive the japanese as "economic animals" who cared for nothing but work, work, work. the image was that of a mass of workers, all alike, running from their rabbit hutches in the morning, stuffing them-selves into trains, disgorging into factories where they produced millions of stereos, cars and cameras, day after day, 24 hours a day. japan was seen as a floating factory in which government and bureaucratic leaders collaborated with the owners of private industry to attack and conquer american markets. the idea of collaboration between government and industry was particularly galling to the united states. the american economy had always been run with as much separation of government and private industry as possible, and anything else was seen as unfair competition. 長いですが、和訳をお願いします。

日本はもはや占領者が見てきた趣のある異国情緒に溢れた国ではなく、それは「日本株式会社」であった。つまり新聞や週刊誌に日本の経済や労働慣習についての情報が溢れて、米国は日本を「エコノミック・アニマル」で、仕事、仕事、仕事以外何にも関心がない国とみなすようになった。 そのイメージは大量の労働者のそれで、全てが同じようでうさぎ小屋から朝飛び出してきて、自ら汽車にすしずめになり、会社になだれ込み、そこでステレオ、車、カメラを日夜を分たず24時間、数百万の商品を生産しているというものだ。 日本は政府、官僚のリーダー達が民間企業のオーナーたちと共謀してアメリカのマーケットを攻撃し、乗っ取ろうとしているような海に浮かぶ工場に見られた。政府と企業が共謀しているという考えは特に米国にとって忌々しいものであった。アメリカの経済は常に政府と民間企業は出来る限り距離を保って運営されるべきで、これ以外は不正な競争とみなされていたのだ。

    At this time the united states was still the over-whelmingly dominant force in the relationship. japanese foreign policy was tired very closely to the Western bloc in the cold war. Not only was japanese security guaranteed by the american military, but the fledgling japanese economic miracle was dependent upon its ties to the american economy. The Amer-icanization of japan was becoming more evident every year. Major changes were bound to follow the steady increase in the strength of the japanese economy. the first japanese surplus in the balance of trade came in 1965. From that year until 1969 the U.S. and Japan maintained a relatively balanced trade. In 1969 Japan accumulated a surplus of almost one billion dollars and, with the exception of a few years in the middle of the 1970s, never looked back.The growing power of the japanese economy was forcing changes in the relationship.

    japan, inc. the american anger toward japan was a direct result of the growing trade deficits. when japanese exports to the u.s. first began to increase signifi-cantly, america was pleased at this sign that its student had learned its lessons so well. however, the teacher felt increasingly helpless as it watched its atudent take control of more and more domestic markets. the japanese became an irresistible scape-goat for american economic problem. as the economic power of japan increased, both the u.s. and japan gradually recognized that, after more than one hundred and twentyyears of either american domination or conflict, the japanese were ap-proaching economic parity with america. the amer-ican reaction to this realization was mixed, but initially negative. "made in japan" had always been a synonym for cheap and shoddy goods. most americans still thought that japan was an under-developed country. how could they be taking over american markets? the shock of realization created a new image of japan in u.s. -- primarily eco-nomic and nagative. 長いですが、宜しくお願いします!

    the second shock was an economic shock and the direct result of a combination of american economic problem: a growing trade imbalance with japan and a dollar that had become too highly valued in the rest of the world. a package of economic policies was announced by president nixon in august that led to an immediate 10% reduction in the value of the dollar (which meant that japanese goods would be more expensive in the u.s) and a temporary 10% tax on imports. the shift in the japanese-american relationship was not only caused by the increased power of japan; america's dominant position in the world was also undergoing serious changes. the watergate scandals and the loss of the war in vietnam combined to cause the american people to lose faith in themselves and to question america's role as the leader of the western bloc. the oil crisis of 1973 added to this malaise by decreasing america's economic ability to support its overseas defense commitments. many congressmen questioned why the u.s was spending money to defend japan when it was increasingly obvious that increased japanese economic strength was one cause for the economic recession in the u.s. 長いですがよろしくお願いします!

    they believed that if they could teach the japanese to adopt the best of american culture and create an american democracy in asia, japan would become a better country and the world a safer place. japan was given a new constitution based, for the most part, on the american constitution which stressed local control over education and the police. Men were no longer allowed the legal right of control over their families and women were allowed to vote. the 6-3-3 educa-tion system was introduced and parents were given oversight through the PTA. Unions were formed.

    old negative stereotypes of the japanese that had been around since world war II were brought back and applied to the new economic context. they were sneaky. they said "yes" at a business meeting, but later said they were just thinking about it. they could not be trusted. they were ungrateful. they were hurting the american economy after the war and taking american jobs after americans had helped them to restart their economy after the war and protected it while it was growing. some americans actually believed that the japanese could only have success-fully competed with america by cheating. 国際/外国語

The difference between Japanese and western conceptions of a good student,and the difference in conversation styles between speakers or Japanese and speakers of English,also figure in the cultual contrast between Japan and West.Japanese tend to think quiet,passive,and obedient youths who perform well on tests are good students.Westerners,(  C  )the other hand,admire those who challenge teachers with original opinions.American teachers,for instance,tend to ask their students what they think and why they think so;Japanese teachers rarely do this.The group dynamics among stgudents and the active interaction between teachers and students so often seen in American classrooms seldom exist in Japanese classes.

    Perhaps more importantly, the seeds of japanese culture were spread in the united states by the almost two million americans who came to japan during the occupation. While they represented only about one percent of the population, they had a tremendous influence on the american image of japan. As each of them returned to the U.S., they brought tales of life in this strange, exotic country which spread to their friends, relatives and neighbors.

    Those seeds began to bear fruit during the 1950s and 60s. The positive images brought back by the occupiers and the increasing ease of air travel created a rapid rise in american tourism to japan. new travel books on japan were published yearly. Zen became the "in" spiritual orientation for both the beatniks and the happies.The traditional arts of flower arranging and paper folding developed popular followings. Rashomom, Gate of Hell, Seven Samurai, and Yojimbo drw critical acclaim for japanese films. the works of Mishima, Abe and others were translat-ed into English and found ready audiences. Millions of americans took up judo and karate as both art and exercise.
