ABSTRACT

United States and East Asia After 9/11   [open pdf - 1MB]

"The September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States have the potential to profoundly alter the nature of US relations with its allies and non-allies alike, The opportunity provided by the loose coalition against terrorism is to leverage US leadership to forge better long-term working relationships with a multitude of states, The danger is that strong US leadership will be interpreted as global hegemony, which will be resisted by other states, even including our allies, This report offers an assessment of views of East Asian governments and peoples on the ongoing anti-terrorism campaign Because the terrorism and response to terrorism is very recent, the sources for this study are primarily official and unofficial statements of East Asian governments, unsystematic surveys of Asian media reactions and public opinion polls, and discussions with East Asian specialists and policy makers."
