Abstract:

This thesis will provide a background look at China's recent history from World War II to present day to examine how they are gaining influence in the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. China is determined to become a global power and increase its international standing in term of influence and Southeast Asia is the start point. This thesis will also examine different approaches the United States and China use to gain Influence and resources. In particular, this thesis will use math modeling and game theory to explore linkages between assistance and Southeast Asian influence. This thesis examines how Chinese assistance is countering the U.S. efforts in Southeast Asia and why the United States must win the battle. This thesis will look at the current U.S. policies toward China and Southeast Asia and explore possible options for the United States in the future. Also how China may try to take control of the South China Sea. This thesis will make recommendations how the United States could more effectively utilize its resources to keep China in check. The thesis will conclude with recommendation for future policy based on the research to determine if the United States can win the battle for Southeast Asia using influence.
