about this item

The author considers the origins of the American alliance system in Asia and why the US chose to build bilateral security institutions in Asia after World War II rather than the multilateral ones it created in Europe through NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization), arguing that historical, political, and strategic circumstances led to exclusive, one-to-one bilateral partnerships with key East Asian countries, as the US aimed to have political, military, and economic power in Taiwan, Korea, and Japan.
