Abstract:

Japan, under the Yoshida Doctrine and the U.S., successfully containing communism at any economic price, have together shared security and economic success in the Pacific Basin. The collapse of the ideology of international communism has provided the opportunity for changing alliances. This paper examines the options open to the U.S. to improve security in Asia in the changed international arena. The analysis argues this is best done through an inevitable broadening central coalition, with the U.S. continuing its close relationship with a stronger Japan and built on a common goal of economic prosperity for the region.
