Embracing Defeat: Japan in the Wake of World War II is a history book written by John W. Dower and published by W. W. Norton & Company in 1999.[1] The book covers the difficult social, economic, cultural and political situation of Japan after World War II and the Occupation of Japan by the Allies between August 1945 and April 1952, delving into topics such as the administration of Douglas MacArthur, the Tokyo war crimes trials, Hirohito's controversial Humanity Declaration and the drafting of the new Constitution of Japan.

Described by The New York Times as "magisterial and beautifully written,"[2] the book won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction,[3] the 1999 National Book Award,[4] the 2000 Bancroft Prize,[5] the 2000 L.L. Winship/PEN New England Award, the Mark Lynton History Prize and the 1999 Los Angeles Times Book Prize.[6]
