"The background to Pearl Harbor" is a bit vague.

I would suggest two books; Gordon Prange's "At Dawn We Slept" and John Toland's "The Rising Sun"

The first third of each book or so (maybe less, maybe more) should cover the background for you pretty well

Hi Jay,
Another coupke of major sources, often ignored in the cloud of material, are Walter Lord's DAY OF INFAMY and Ladislas Farago's BROKEN SEAL.

The Lord volume has an excellent tactical history of that day with a bit of lead-in to the day from the Japanese side.

The Farago volume was used by the movie writers of TORA! TORA! TORA!...as it has excellent details on the actions in Washington DC and code breaking problems. A few have focused on the errors in the paperback version's addendum, yet the main text is quite excellent.
