This thesis is concerned with the possibilities for cooperation in the security of greater East Asia by the ROK Navy and Japan's Maritime Self -Defense Force. It examines the early histories of those navies, their traditions and images, and the cultural antipathies and nuances which affect aspects of cooperation. External threats to the security of the region are weighed, balanced against the political and economic foreign policies of Japan and the ROK, and a strategic calculus involving U.S. participation is carefully developed. The ensuing impacts of cooperation on Japan, the ROK, and the U.S. are set forth, with the likely limitations stemming from internal political processes. Finally, the realities of possible cooperation are assessed, and some recommendations advanced for encouraging and enhancing that cooperation.
