Publisher's Summary

The United States needs to understand each of the many Asian states in detail: while there are similarities, they all have situations that are difficult to compare. The U.S., Japan, and Asia in International Politics focuses on U.S. interests in Asia in its broadest contours - from Japan, China, and the Koreas in the east; a discussion of India in the south; and also to Afghanistan and Pakistan in the west. This book also treats Russia as an Asia-Pacific power.

Author Andrew K. Hanami examines the economic, financial, trade, and security issue differences in the region. Washington is rushing to find a balance in its foreign policy goals among the differing Asia-Pacific states through such measures as: erecting trade corridors, enacting bilateral arrangements, deploying troops, and pursuing a cycle of encirclement and openness as the administration searches for stability and prosperity.

This text explores if U.S. policy is improving on the problems found in a suddenly larger Asia, or in some way compounding them.

well written at the time, now badly dated

This is a well written analysis, but EA changed and the analysis needs updating. Korea, Japan, ASEAN, China under Xi, and Australia have all changed markedly since 2008, and American politicy under Obama's second term and Trump's first two years have shifted the game.
