3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

United States security policy in East Asia is still in large measure based on President Ford's 'New Pacific Doctrine' of 7 December 1975. The first point made by this doctrine is that American strength is basic to any stable balance of power in the Pacific. The doctrine's second point emphasizes the importance of relations with Japan in maintaining peace and stability in the area. The main point of this paper is to show how United States security policy in East Asia is affected by Japan. The first step is to define United States security objectives in East Asia and the security-related aspects of Japanese-American relations. The chapters on the Japanese view of security provide a different perspective on East Asian security. After looking at both the United States' and Japan's individual views of security, the author brings the two together. Several options are presented for United States security policy, while remembering Japanese attitudes, positions, and restrictions. Finally, greater cooperation and coordination between Japan and the United States in security matters is proposed and supported
