    • United States -- Foreign relations -- 2001-

    Abstract:

    Subject Headings:
    • International cooperation.
    • International law.
    Abstract:
      A vice president at the World Bank argues that, with a little imagination and initiative, policymaking bodies called global issues networks can transcend the limits imposed by territorial and hierarchical institutions that were never constructed to address inherently global challenges.
    Zisk, Kimberly Marten, 1963-

    • United States -- Foreign relations -- Afghanistan.
    • Afghanistan -- Foreign relations -- United States.
    Abstract:
      If Washington does not reevaluate its current approach, Afghanistan’s postwar stability might prove short-lived. Here’s a look at what kind of peacekeeping force is needed in Afghanistan, how it would best operate, and why the United States should lead it.
    Weidenbaum, Murray L.

    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Corporate governance -- United States.
    • Business enterprises -- Law and legislation -- United States.
    Abstract:
      American business leaders have hurt public confidence in the private enterprise system. Without sustained changes in the way corporations, including top management, conduct business, a new round of pervasive, arbitrary government regulation will ensue.
    Kamiya, Matake.
  • Nuclear Japan: Oxymoron or Coming Soon?
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Nuclear weapons -- Government policy -- Japan.
    • Japan -- Military policy.
    • Japan -- Foreign relations -- 1989-
    Abstract:
      Comments by two Japanese government officials earlier this year have reinforced realist predictions and international suspicion that Japan might choose to pursue nuclear proliferation. Yet, Japan is not willing, interested, or able to become a nuclear power.
    Self, Benjamin.
  • China and Japan: A Façade of Friendship
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • China -- Foreign relations -- Japan.
    • Japan -- Foreign relations -- China.
    • China -- Foreign relations -- 1976-
    • Japan -- Foreign relations -- 1989-
    Abstract:
      Continuing to rely on the friendship diplomacy framework is more likely to hurt the relationship between China and Japan. By easing the frustration of faking a friendship and focusing on more realistic common interests, sound ties would become possible.

    • Korean reunification question (1945- )
    • United States Forces, Korea.
    Abstract:
      The U.S.-ROK alliance is slowly but steadily approaching a pivotal reassessment. It is time to stop thinking about the alliance in ad hoc terms and start creating the vision for the future U.S. presence in Northeast Asia generally and in Korea specifically.
    Kim, Seung-Hwan.

    • United States -- Military relations -- Korea (South)

    Abstract:
      Anti-Americanism is growing at a startling rate in South Korea. Unless Washington and Seoul work together to counter this trend, popular Korean attitudes could jeopardize the future of the U.S.-Korean alliance.
    Mitchell, Derek J.
  • A Blueprint for U.S. Policy toward a Unified Korea

      Who knows when unification will occur, but the last 15 years have shown that dramatic international change is often swift and unexpected. Planning for this contingency today, according to the principles outlined here, can help ensure regional stability.

The U.S. Role in South Asia

    Raja Mohan, C.
  • A Paradigm Shift toward South Asia?
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • War on Terrorism, 2001-
    • United States -- Foreign relations -- South Asia.
    • South Asia -- Foreign relations -- United States.
    • United States -- Foreign relations -- 2001-
    • National security -- South Asia.
    Abstract:
      South Asia is at the cusp of a historic transformation. If the Bush administration can sustain the level of involvement it has demonstrated since September 11, the prospect of reordering both the subcontinent’s interstate relations and its intrastate dynamics is real.
    Limaye, Satu P.
  • Mediating Kashmir: A Bridge Too Far
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • India -- Foreign relations -- Pakistan.
    • Pakistan -- Foreign relations -- India.
    • Mediation, International.
    • United States -- Foreign relations -- South Asia.
    • South Asia -- Foreign relations -- United States.
    Abstract:
      Calls for the United States to conduct sustained mediation to solve the subcontinent’s conflict are misguided. Episodic crisis management, however cumbersome and unsatisfying, is more feasible, effective, and commensurate with U.S. interests.
    Schaffer, Teresita C.
  • U.S. Influence on Pakistan: Can Partners Have Divergent Priorities?
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • United States -- Foreign relations -- Pakistan.
    • Pakistan -- Foreign relations -- United States.
    • United States -- Foreign relations -- 2001-
    • Pakistan -- Foreign relations -- India.
    • India -- Foreign relations -- Pakistan.
    Abstract:
      For more than fifty years, the United States and Pakistan have had overlapping interests but differing priorities, resulting in a pattern of disillusionment. To avoid repeating history, Washington should depersonalize its policy and reconsider its priorities.
