Barack Obama s rebalancing strategy or pivot strategy, intended to demonstrate continued US commitment to the Asia Pacific region in a variety of military, economic and diplomatic contexts, was launched with much fanfare in 2011. Implicit in the new strategy is both a focus on Ch...ina, both engagement with, and containment of, and also a demonstration of how far the US relies on its existing allies in the region to implement its strategy. This book explores the impact of the new strategy on the US s allies in the region, and the allies responses. It shows how the US s allies are fearful of direct confrontation with China; how they are concerned about the ability of the US to sustain the strategy in the long run; and how the US has differing degrees of engagement with different allies. Overall, the book outlines the deep complexities of the United States exercise of power and influence in the region.
