JAPAN IN THE NEW EAST ASIAN INTERNATIONAL ORDER: IMPLICATIONS FOR US POLICY,
RESEARCH ANALYSIS CORP MCLEAN VA
Pagination or Media Count:
United States-Japan security relations are in the midst of fundamental change as Japan becomes more fully engaged in the fluid international politics of East Asia. Divisions within and between Japanese political parties and the style of political leadership make unlikely a sharp break in Japan-American relations-along the lines, for example, of De Gaulles revision of US-French ties. The end of a bipolar global international order, the rise of an Asian-oriented nationalism in Japan, substantial and rapidly increasing Japanese economic and political ties with non-Communist Asian nations, and, above all, the nuclear security threat posed by Communist China have projected Japan deeply into the international politics of Asia. Japanese and American security aims in East Asia are compatible but not identical, and future Japan-US security ties must take account of Japans greatly expanded capacities and aspirations. Author
