In view of the rapidly changing security environment surrounding Japan—the growing Soviet military buildup, the relative decline of U.S. military, economic, and diplomatic power, and the growing influence of its regional neighbors in the Asian-Pacific region, the time has arrived for Japan to consider assuming greater responsibilities in its security and diplomatic policies. Until recently, Japan, despite its strong economy, has had no clearly defined role either in international politics or in the politics of the Asian-Pacific region. This thesis examines how Japan is becoming increasingly aware that it must play a more active role in .the Asian-Pacific region and of the responsibilities it should assume for regional development. In addition, this thesis examines Japan's position and relations with the countries in the Asian-Pacific region, and considers the problems and options which face Japan in its quest for a comprehensive and credible strategic plan for maintaining its national security.
