With Korea, Vietnam and the Gulf War as bloody memories of the past, East Asia and the Pacific enters a new era of international relations with the turn to the 21st Century. The entire region, and the rest of the world, breathes more freely because the cold war in its passing has taken with it the imminent danger of a nuclear holocaust. Never has the time been more propitious for a reexamination of conflicts of national security interests in East Asia, with special attention to the role of the United States. It is the purpose of this study to analyze successively the strategic situation in Northeast Asia, China, Southeast Asia and the Southwest Pacific with a view to finding more effective policies and strategies for peace, stability and prosperity.
We in the East Asian Area Studies division of the Department of National Security Affairs at the U.S. Naval Post-Graduate School, Monterey, California (NPS) are constantly challenged to put on record the results of our research on conflicts of national interests in the vast region of East Asia and the Pacific (EA/P). Our faculty consists of experienced academicians or government servants and our student body is made up of active duy, mid-level officers of the navy, marines, army, air force or civilian agencies beginning the transition from successful careers in their particular communities to the broader world of political-military relations. On the average they have spent eight to ten years in the service of their country. Upon completion of their Master's degree, they will hopefully be assigned to stations where their knowledge can be put into practice. Officers from friendly countries frequently participate in our program, but our primary concerns are the security interests, objectives and strategies of the United States.
