Abstract:

The AsianPacific area has become a multipolar arena for four major powers and a host of smaller ones. With the growth of pluralism and the dynamic relationships between nations, the region will remain a major source of problems and international tension. In this brief article, the author attempts to show why the United States must preserve a balancing presence in Asia in order to maintain peace in the area, emphasizing political and economic means while maintaining a credible military capability.
