A US Strategy for the Asia-Pacific prepares the ground - both for US policy makers and America's allies in Asia - for the time in the near future when the United States will no longer be in a position to guarantee the stability of the Asia- Pacific region by its unilateral actions and forwardmilitary presence. Arguing that the US-dominated system of Asian security from the Cold War era needs a fundamental transformation over the next ten years, the authors recommend a number of steps the US can take to help develop a moderate multipolar balance of power in Asia. They contend that the actions of Asiangovernments will have to be conditioned by a general interest in war avoidance and an acceptance of the need for economic and political co-operation. To bring about this new system, the US must work with key Asia-Pacific governments to resolve three outstanding security problems: the continuingthreat of war on the Korean peninsular, the risks of conflict across the Taiwan Strait, and the danger of loss of control in the South China Sea. Washington also needs to reconcile its economic interests in the Asia-Pacific with its regional security goals and a commitment to global free trade. To make progress on any of these issues, the Americans have to work with their traditional allies in the region to establish a new modus vivendiwith the country most likely to present a revisionist challenge to the new Asian order - the People's Republic of China.
