about

China's growing economy and military power may allow it to challenge US influence in East and Southeast Asia. Wayne Bert examines the likelihood of this and the impact it would have on Southeast Asian security. The approach taken by both the US and China will affect the outcome of this struggle and both the Southeast Asian commitment to economic growth and the development of regional institutions will encourage peaceful evolution and a power transition that avoids major conflict.
WAYNE BERT served as a policy analyst in the US Defence Department and taught at Wilmington College, Ohio. He is now an independent scholar and is the author ofThe Reluctant Superpower: United States Policy in Bosnia 1991-95, together with numerous articles on Asian and international politics.
