Abstract:

In recognition of a new and developing multipolar world, the Nixon Doctrine--willingness to negotiate, partnerships, and strength--has replaced the United States policy of the Cold War--containment of communism. South Korea had played a significant strategic role in the containment policy by providing the U.S. with a foothold on the continent at a strategic point where Chinese, Russian, and Japanese influence had historically clashed. The essay appraises the consequences of the Nixon Doctrine and its new perceptions on the strategic significance of South Korea to the U.S.
