Coherent high-order harmonic generation by an isolated two-level system is studied. A perturbative theory for the adiabatic regime is presented; the theory describes the plateau structure found experimentally in noble gases. Numerical results, without the rotating-wave approximation, are used to check the analytical predictions.
