Abstract : Professors Dingman and Graebner highlight part one with a couplet of major papers on the creation and evolution of an American commitment in East Asia from 1898 to 1960. The second collection of papers provides a look at American pacification and occupation activities in three important areas: the Philippines, 1898-1902; Japan, 1945-1952; and Vietnam, 1956-1960. The third and fourth parts of this volume address two sides of the same question: What impact did the American military and Asian societies have on one another? Part three features papers by active duty and retired military officers, all trained as historians, who examine the impact of the Asian experience on the organizational structure, strategy and tactics, and doctrine of the components of the American military. The fourth part of this volume examines the impact of the American military on elements of three Asian societies: China, Japan, and Korea. In the last part of this volume, Professosrs Ropp and Coox offer stimulating reflections upon the American military and East Asia.
