While the American alliance system in Asia has been fundamental to the region's security and prosperity for seven decades, today it encounters challenges from the growth of China-based regional organizations. How was the American alliance system originally established in Asia, and is it currently under threat? How are competing security designs being influenced by the United States and China? In Powerplay, Victor Cha draws from theories about alliances, unipolarity, and regime complexity to examine the evolution of the U.S. alliance system and the reasons for its continued importance in Asia and the world. Cha delves into the fears, motivations, and aspirations of the Truman and Eisenhower presidencies as they contemplated alliances with the Republic of China, Republic of Korea, and Japan at the outset of the Cold War. Their choice of a bilateral "hub and spokes" security design for Asia was entirely different from the system created in Europe, but it was essential for its time. Cha argues that the alliance system’s innovations in the twenty-first century contribute to its resiliency in the face of China’s increasing prominence, and that the task for the world is not to choose between American and Chinese institutions, but to maximize stability and economic progress amid Asia’s increasingly complex political landscape. Exploring U.S. bilateral relations in Asia after World War II, Powerplay takes an original look at how global alliances are achieved and maintained.

During the cold war, the U.S.-Japan alliance was at the core of American presence, power, and prestige in the Asia-Pacific Region. When the Cold War ended, many questioned whether the alliance would continue to serve U.S. and Japanese interests. In the late 1990s the United States and Japan answered that question with a formal reaffirmation of the security treaty and the upgrading of bilateral guidelines for defense cooperation. But the alliance has also faced new challenges: domestic opposition to U.S. bases in Okinawa; Chinese criticism of a stronger U.S.-Japan security relationship; and growing international frustration with Japan's economic policies. The alliance remains crucial to both nations' interests, but the management of bilateral security ties has become far more complex.The U.S.-Japan Alliance: Past, Present, and Future explains the inner workings of the U.S.-Japan alliance and recommends new approaches to sustaining this critical bilateral security relationship. The authors are scholars and practitioners who understand where the alliance came from, how it is managed, and the strategic decisions that will have to be made in the future.

"In the history of the US-Japan alliance, the so-called Okinawa problem-how to alleviate the burden of Okinawa's hosting of over seventy-five percent of US forces in Japan-remains to be one of the toughest alliance management issues for US and Japanese policymakers. Over the past two years, twelve experts on the US-Japan alliance have met periodically to discuss the various strategic and political aspects of this unique relationship, with special attention paid to the unusually large role Okinawa has played in housing US troops in Japan. Analyzing US force realignments in the Asia-Pacific region that have been ongoing as part of the Global Posture Review (GPR), Strategic Yet Strained: US Force Realignment in Japan and its Effects on Okinawa is a culmination of these conversations, providing a comprehensive overview of where the US-Japan alliance has been, where it is now, and where it will be going in the future. With six Japanese researchers and six American perspectives, Strategic Yet Strained offers rare insight into how the complicated relationships of Washington, Tokyo, and the local government of Okinawa affect the Us-Japan alliance and the entire security of East Asia."--Provided by publisher.

The future of the U.S.-Japan security alliance is in doubt. Events such as the 1995 rape incident in Okinawa and massive public demonstrations in Japan against the U.S. troop presence have forces Washington and Tokyo to acknowledge that the relationship they forged during the Cold War must change with changing times. In fall 1996, the Council on Foreign Relations accordingly formed a Study Group, chaired by Harold Brown of CSIS and Richard Armitage of Armitage and Associates, to reexamine current assumptions and explore the factors affection the evolution of this crucial alliance. In September 1997, the Council followed up with a workshop on the new Guidelines for U.S.-Japan Defense Cooperation. The two essays and Guidelines Report in this volume assess the international and domestic forces at work to change this "immutable" relationship
