Asia's new multilateralism : cooperation, competition, and the search for community( )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,001 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditionally, stability in Asia has relied on America's bilateral alliances with Japan, Australia, and the Republic of Korea. Yet in recent years, emergent and more active multilateral forums & mdash;such as the Six-Party Talks on North Korea and the East Asia Summit & mdash;have taken precedence, engendering both cooperation and competition while reflecting the local concerns of the region. Some are concerned that this process is moving toward less-inclusive, bloc-based ""talking shops"" and that the future direction and success of these arrangements, along with their implication
By more than providence : grand strategy and American power in the Asia Pacific since 1783 by Michael J Green( )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Soon after the American Revolution, the United States began to recognize the strategic significance of Asia and the Pacific and its vast material and cultural resources. Many asked whether the United States should partner with China, which operates at the center of Asia, or Japan, which is located in the middle of the Pacific. Where should the United States draw its defensive line, and how should it export democratic principles? In a history that spans the eighteenth century to the present, Michael J. Green follows the development of U.S. policy toward East Asia, identifying recurring themes in American statecraft that reflect the nation's political philosophy and material realities. Drawing on archives, interviews, and his own experience in the Pentagon and White House, Green finds one overarching concern driving U.S. policy toward East Asia: a fear felt by Americans that a rival power might use the Pacific to isolate and threaten the United States and prevent the ocean from becoming a conduit for the westward free flow of trade, values, and forward defense. By More Than Providence works through these problems from the perspective of history's major strategists and statesmen, from Thomas Jefferson to Alfred Thayer Mahan and Henry Kissinger. It records the fate of their ideas as they collided with the realities of the Far East and adds clarity to America's stakes in the region, especially when compared with those of Europe and the Middle East."--Provided by publisher
The U.S.-Japan alliance : past, present, and future( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arming Japan : defense production, alliance politics, and the postwar search for autonomy by Michael J Green( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and Chinese and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through five decades of postwar alliance with the United States, Japanese bureaucrats, politicians, and industrialists have debated the advantages of kokusanka - the indigenous development and production of weapons of war. Arming Japan explores the evolution of the kokusanka debate, elucidating clearly the question of Japanese political and military autonomy in the postwar era. Drawing on scores of original documents, Michael Green brings life to the institutions, individuals, ideas, and interests that have shaped Japanese policymaking in an area where technology, security, and economics intersect. Beginning with an explanation of the prewar precedents for kokusanka, Arming Japan follows the growth of Japan's postwar defense industrial base from its rebirth in the Korean War to its collision with the United States Congress in the FSX controversy of the late 1980s. By chronicling the rise and fall of postwar Japanese strategies for kokusanka, Green demonstrates both the limits of technonationalism and the challenges of managing an alliance when the members' relative economic power shifts
Redefining the U.S.-Japan alliance : Tokyo's National Defense Program by Patrick M Cronin( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japan is starting to emerge as a major player in the international security affairs of the post-Cold War era. With the approach of the half-century mark since the conclusion of the Second World War, Japan's postwar generation of leaders appears more confident than their predecessors about their country's potential contribution to global peace and stability. Evidence that Japan may be finding its footing as a great market democracy is extant in the recent report of a distinguished advisory commission reviewing Japan's National Defense Program Outline: "Japan should extricate itself from its security policy of the past that was, if anything, passive, and henceforth play an active role in shaping a new order."2
Strategic Japan : new approaches to foreign policy and the U.S.-Japan alliance by Michael J Green( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Does Japan have a grand strategy? Is Japan capable of grand strategy? In the postwar period, Japan aligned with United States and focused on economic growth. Today, Japan faces challenges from a rising China and constrained economic growth requiring new tools of statecraft. In this volume, five Japanese experts address these issues, highlighting areas for enhanced U.S.-Japan cooperation--at a time when the United States needs a confident and proactive Japan, and Japan needs sustained American engagement in a changing Asia-Pacific region"--Back cover
Managing change on the Korean Peninsula : report of an independent task force sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations by Council on Foreign Relations( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Korean peninsula remains one of the most heavily armed and dangerous places in the world. Despite its deteriorating economy, North Korea retains a standing army of over one million men and an enormous arsenal of artillery and missiles, most of them as close to Seoul, the South Korean capital, as Dulles Airport is to downtown Washington, DC. In 1994, the United States and North Korea almost went to war over the North's nuclear program. Since then, Washington and Seoul have attempted to cap North Korea's nuclear ambitions through the Agreed Framework, but the threat from the North remains. According to Managing Change on the Korean Peninsula, U.S. policy has not moved far enough to reduce the underlying threat from the North and to encourage North-South reconciliation. Noting that the new Republic of Korea (ROK) government has taken steps to open North Korea to broader contacts with the outside world while asserting that it will brook no military aggression from the North, this Task Force recommends a parallel and supportive approach for U.S. policy. It should be premised on robust deterrence, close U.S.-ROK cooperation, and an acknowledgement that the United States does not seek a takeover of the North by the South or the North's destruction. At the same time, the Task Force recommends that the policy should expand contact with the North, join with Seoul in offering a larger package of reciprocal moves that might induce the North to make significant changes in its policies, and deny any assistance to the North if Pyongyang rejects the opportunity for threat reduction and reconciliation. The Task Force argues that, despite the difficulties in dealing with North Korea, this approach can, at a minimum, enhance stability on the peninsula and establish the groundwork for positive change
U.S. policy toward North Korea : next steps by Council on Foreign Relations( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Korean peninsula remains one of the world's most dangerous places. While North Korea has an army of 1.2 million troops and holds Seoul hostage with its missiles and artillery, Pyongyang is in desperate straits after a decade of economic decline, food shortages, and diplomatic isolation. In 1998, former U.S. Defense Secretary William Perry traveled to Pyongyang to propose increasing outside aid from the United States, South Korea, and Japan in exchange for North Korea's promise to reduce military provocations. The third in a series of influential Task Force reports on Korea policy, this study argues that, in spite of tensions, the United States should continue to support South Korea's engagement policy and keep Perry's proposal on the table. The Task Force recommends that, should North Korea increase tensions by testing long-range missiles, the United States and its allies should take a new approach to Pyongyang, including enhancing U.S.-Japan and South Korean deterrence against other North Korean threats, suspending new South Korean investment in North Korea, and placing new Japanese restrictions on financial transfers to the North. By suggesting the possibility of gradually reducing the danger on the Korean peninsula, this report represents a crucial addition to the discussion of U.S.-North Korean economic relations
A global history of the twentieth century : legacies and lessons from six national perspectives( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, a distinguished group of scholars examine the national esperiences of six major thwentieth-century powers - the United States, Japan, Turkey, China, India, and Germany - to discern the centuries' legacies for today and the lessons for tomorrow. They explore core themes including anticolonialism, democracy, socialism, nationalism, industrialization, nuclear weapons, and globalization and provide their own personal interpretations of the century, as well as their respective nation's experiences and historical memory of the era. Together, they provide a broad historical context of the forces that shaped the twentieth century that will be of interest to scholars and students of history as well as policymakers. -- 4ème de couverture
Decoding China's emerging "great power" strategy in Asia by Christopher K Johnson( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"China's reemergence as a great power over the next few decades represents the primary strategic challenge for the U.S.-Japan security alliance and for the East Asian security landscape writ large. A clearer understanding of the fundamental underpinnings and trajectory of China's foreign policy and security strategies toward the region is necessary to navigate these challenges and assure stability and prosperity in Asia. As such, this report seeks to illuminate the new Chinese leadership's preoccupations, priorities, and policy predilections so that key stakeholders in East and Southeast Asia can determine how they can contribute both individually and collectively to keeping Asia safe and prosperous in a period of great uncertainty and diminishing resources."--Provided by publisher

Countering coercion in maritime Asia : the theory and practice of gray zone deterrence by Michael J Green( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the past decade, tensions in Asia have risen as Beijing has become more assertive in maritime disputes with its neighbors and the United States. Although taking place below the threshold of direct military confrontation, China's assertiveness frequently involves coercive elements that put at risk existing rules and norms; physical control of disputed waters and territory; and the credibility of U.S. security commitments. Regional leaders have expressed increasing alarm that such 'gray zone' coercion threatens to destabilize the region by increasing the risk of conflict and undermining the rules-based order. Yet, the United States and its allies and partners have struggled to develop effective counters to China's maritime coercion. This study reviews deterrence literature and nine case studies of coercion to develop recommendations for how the United States and its allies and partners could counter gray zone activity
Postwar Japan : growth, security, and uncertainty since 1945( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Assessing the Asia-Pacific rebalance by David Berteau( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Three years have passed since President Barack Obama laid the groundwork for the U.S. rebalance to the Asia-Pacific region. Support for the rebalance strategy is substantial, but questions remain about its implementation. As China's power grows and its assertiveness in regional disputes increases, U.S. allies and partners continue to rely on the United States to help reinforce regional security. In this increasingly tense environment, it is critical that regional allies, partners, and competitors recognize and acknowledge that the United States is a Pacific power with the ability to carry out its rebalance strategy. This report evaluates both public statements and visible implementation of the U.S. rebalance strategy, as viewed not only from Washington but from regional capitals as well. The report is not intended to provide a broad assessment of the entire Asia-Pacific rebalance strategy but rather concentrates on the security-focused elements of the rebalance. A central finding is the consistent support among rebalance proponents for the importance of modernizing U.S. relationships, presence, and capabilities in the Asia Pacific. Not only are these elements being prioritized in Washington, they are also being watched by foreign leaders, especially those in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), who are looking for indications of U.S. intent and capability to carry out its rebalance strategy"--Publisher's web site
Federated defense in Asia by Michael J Green( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report is the first regional study in the CSIS Federated Defense series. The Federated Defense Project aims to shift the paradigm with key allies and partners from capacity building to a federated approach that would expand regional security and prosperity by joining regional allies and partners together in the pursuit of shared security objectives across the conflict spectrum. Federated defense should include forward-thinking strategies for how to develop and share capabilities and capacity, thereby more deeply integrating the U.S. military with its allies and partners. In this report, the CSIS project team highlights six potential federated initiatives in the areas of humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, information and intelligence sharing, maritime security, undersea warfare, missile defense, and cyber security. Federated approaches such as these are vital to developing and integrating Asian security capabilities to manage emerging security challenges"--Publisher's web site
Asia's response to climate change and natural disasters : implications for an evolving regional architecture( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new report by energy, regional, and humanitarian disaster specialists at CSIS examines the politics of climate change in Asia, the region's response to natural disasters, and the implications for the future geometry of Asia's institutions and U.S. policy in the region. The assessment looks broadly at two areas of nontraditional security cooperation in Asia: (1) climate change, including the domestic political factors in Asia and the regional strategies for securing low-carbon pathways; and (2) regional approaches to disaster management. The volume draws on case studies to assess the utility of existing and emerging institutions--the promises as well as the problems--as the United States and the region seek greater cooperation on both traditional and nontraditional security challenges. The authors discuss the problems related to lack of coordination at different levels, the uncertain role of the military, and continuing gaps in resources and expertise in key organizations. Looking ahead, the authors conclude that the United States will continue to play a critical role in supporting the region's response to many of the natural disasters it will face. They also recommend that the United States seek to focus Asia's attention on the long-term threat of climate change and other slow-onset disasters. As the authors explain, not only is the region expected to be a major victim of the consequences of climate change, it is a source of the threat itself. They recommend that the United States continue its bilateral and multilateral programs to increase energy efficiency and the use of alternative energy and clean-coal technology and that it also begin to explore broad, secure, low-carbon pathways within the Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate."--Publisher description
Numerical method for the solution of large systems of differential equations of the boundary-layer type by Michael J Green( )

4 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A numerical method for the solution of large systems of nonlinear differential equations of the boundary-layer type is described. The method is a modification of the technique for satisfying asymptotic boundary conditions. The present method employs inverse interpolation instead of the Newton method to adjust the initial conditions of the related initial-value problem. This eliminates the so-called perturbation equations. The elimination of the perturbation equations not only reduces the user's preliminary work in the application of the method, but also reduces the number of time-consuming initial-value problems to be numerically solved at each iteration. For further ease of application, the solution of the overdetermined system for the unknown initial conditions is obtained automatically by applying Golub's linear least-squares algorithm. The relative ease of application of the proposed numerical method increases directly as the order of the differential-equation system increases. Hence, the method is especially attractive for the solution of large-order systems. After the method is described, it is applied to a fifth-order problem from boundary-layer theory
