英語 長文の和訳を教えてください。

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

第二次世界大戦以来広まっていた日本人に関する古い否定的な固定観念が、呼び戻されて、新しい経済関係に適用されました。日本人は姑息である。日本人は仕事の会合では「はい」と言ったのに、後で、ちょっとそれについては考慮中だと言う。日本人は、信用できない。彼らは恩知らずだ。アメリカ人が、戦後、日本人が彼らの経済を再開するのを手伝って、日本が成長する間、それを保護してやったのに、日本人は戦後アメリカの経済に損害を与えていて、アメリカ人の仕事を奪っている。日本人は、不正行為をすることによってアメリカとうまく競争することができるに過ぎないと、実際に思っているアメリカ人もありました。 ☆ 第2文からは、アメリカ人の間にどの様な日本人に対する否定的な固定観念があったかを述べている部分です。時制は過去形になっていますが、訳では現在形にしました。

    how we got here perry's display of american technology and weaponry was succesful in opening japan, and during the first three decades of the meiji period the U.S. served as a model for japanese modernization, but it was never an equal relationship. americans were the teachers and were more than happy in their role, teaching the japanese everything from english to baseball to military strategy. they believed that God had given them the best country and the best civiliza-tion in the word, and that their duty was to spread their culture to others.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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。

    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.

     One interesting difference between the American and Japanese cultures is in the area of tolerance and forgiveness. The Japanese will tolerate a great deal more than the average American without complaining.This is because it is rude to complain and fuss over little things in Japan.However,if something or someone irritates a Japanese,he will keep his anger down;but gradually,unless the provocation stops,the point is reached that in English we call 'the straw that breaks the camel's back,' meaning little things piled up one by one become a staggering load and finally one more becomes unbearable. When this happens the Japanese may or may not tell the person off or show anger,but he will probably break off the relationship for good. An American on the other hand very quickly becomes irritated by others and soon vents his anger when he deslikes what someone has done. But it does not mean very much and if he reacts too strongly the next day he may tell his friend,"Please forgive me," and according to American culture his friend should forgive him. The misunderstanding of this difference sometimes causes Americans to think of the Japanese as a bit insincere, as you can never tell how they really feel,and the Japanese think that Americans are a bit foolish because they are so frank. In reality it's just a difference in culture.

    訳をお願いします。 The pioneer spirit or the American dream (about/as/is/often/talked) a beautiful concept, but we should remember there is dark reality behind this dream. One terrible part of this reality is the effect this dream had on the Native American population. The opportunity that the New World offered was in fact stolen from the native peoples. For the various tribes of the Americas, the American dream was a real nightmare. After the Civil War, as more white Americans in quest of gold moved westward, conflict with the Native Americans became unavoidable. The white Americans wanted to have as much land as they could in order to get gold from it. The "indians," of course, either lived on the land in question or their villages kept the way to it blocked. To the white Americans the Native Americans were annoying. They viewed them as a kind of dangerous wild beast, like a wolf or a grizzly bear, which had to be removed before they could develop the land. Then wars occurred between them, and the Indian wars resulted in many white American military "victories." They had much stronger weapons and they destroyed entire villages and killed all the people, including the women and children. A common slogan of the time was "The only good Indian is a dead Indian." One commander of the United States Army said, "If we don't kill Indians, (by/get/killed/them /we'll)." The population of the North American Indians------excluding Mexico---- went from nearly two million before the "discovery" of America to less than 250,000 by 1910. *( )内は並び替えです

    the americans even changed the absentee landlords and selling it to the peasants. the occupation also brought back american cul-true. bobbysocks, hamburgers, hollywood, Reader's Digest and american slang all came with the occu-piers, but did not leave with them. in films, maga zine and, later, on television, millions of japanese saw the american dream appear before their eyes. great houses surrounded by rolling lawns, big cars, handsome teenagers drinking soda pop at the drug store and dancing to rock 'n' roll; these images became the goals that many young japanese struggled to achieve in the years to come as they worked to make the economic miracle a reality.

    Positive Influences Although the initial reaction to the increased strength of the Japanese economy was negative, there have since been many positive effects on the Japanese-American relationship. Most important of all, it has for the first time allowed americans to identify with Japan, and forced Americans to under-stand Japan as a real country. When America was dominant or in conflict, it was easy to dismiss Japan with superficial stereotypes. Before the introduction of high-quality consumer goods into the american market Japan had been a remote, exotic, psychologi-cally inaccessible place most amercans. It was, now Americans found themselves forced to compete directly with the Japanese and to understand them. That, in a sense, has made the Japanese less exotic, more immediate, and, in some ways, more Western. Americans perceived similarities as they were forced to get to know the Japanese better, especially in the superficialities of urban life --clothing, food, environ-ment, daily commute. The rapidly increasing number of Americans who traveled to Japan for business and pleasure noted the similarities they found. These were partly a result of the Americanization of Japan since the occupation and partly the similarities that exist between any two industrially developed countries.
