What tools will international relations theorists need to understand the complex relationship among China, Japan, and the United States as the three powers shape the economic and political future of this crucial region? Some of the best and most innovative scholars in international relations and Asian area studies gather here with the working premise that stability in the broader Asia-Pacific region is in large part a function of the behavior of, and relationships among, these three major powers.

Krogh Professor of Geopolitics and Global Justice at Georgetown University and author of After Victory: Institutions, Strategic Restraint, and the Rebuilding of Order After Major War.
