How might such change reconfigure American security requirements in the next decade and beyond? On what basis does the United States reaffirm yet redefine its enduring commitment to regional order? Do the political and strategic identities and power trajectories of key regional actors suggest significant divergence from the United States? This volume, a collaborative effort involving prominent specialists on both sides of the Pacific, addresses these issues. The book focuses on underlying attitudes toward American power and policy, especially as viewed by strategic analysts within the region. Various contributors describe contradictory attitudes toward American power. Most states hope to deepen ties with the United States, while avoiding comprehensive envelopment in U.S. strategy. There is a clear tension between the preference for continued American regional involvement, while seeking to limit the possibilities of highly intrusive U.S. policy interventions. Both considerations will continue to shape regional attitudes toward American power, especially U.S. military power.”
