dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this thesis is to examine the role of the United States in the framework of ASEAN security in the post-Cold War world. Toward that end, the thesis examines the evolution of U.S. involvement in the political-economic-military development of the states that came together as ASEAN. It then seeks to identify the components of America's security strategy for the region relevant to the post-Cold War environment and, therefore, necessary in developing a New World Order policy for the U.S. position in Southeast Asia. Central arguments include: the U.S. military presence is critical to the region's security; Japanese participation through continued economic penetration with ASEAN is an essential cornerstone of the regional security picture; the potential for regional destabilization may be heightened as a result of declining East-West confrontation; and, ASEAN's inability to act jointly in defense of regional security and stability will necessitate an on- going U.S. military presence in order to safeguard key sea lanes and trans- shipment points.en_US
