              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.

              Studies of the escalating tensions and competing claims in the South China Sea overwhelmingly focus on China and its increasingly assertive approach, while the position of the other claimants is overlooked. This book focuses on the attitude of Vietnam towards the South China Sea ...dispute. It examines the position from a historical perspective, shows how Vietnam s position is affected by its with to maintain good relations with China on a range of issues, and outlines how Vietnam has occasionally made overtures to both the United States and Japan in order to bolster its position, and considered the possibility, so far resisted, of taking China to formal arbitration under the auspices of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. The book concludes by assessing the future prospects for Vietnam s position in the dispute.

              Predicting the impact of China's rise on East Asia is especially difficult for defence planners, whose work is always concenrned with assessing strategic risk, deciding which risks are more likely than others, and designing the structure of forces to deal with potential threats, ...where the forces thus designed can fix the shape of regional defence for years to come.a This book analyses the defence policy statements of three key Asia Pacific powers - the United States, Australia and New Zealand - and shows how uncertainty about the rise of China has influenced current defence planning decisions, and how thinking about the strategic risks associated with China have changed over time.a Key issues covered include the difference in approach by the three countries, the degree to which strategic risk emanates from China directly or indirectly from China's wider impact on the region, the consequences for Japan of China's rise, and an assessment of whether the defence planning responses are commesurate with the real degree of risk.

              As tensions between China and Japan increase, including over the disputed islands in the East China Sea, Japan has adopted under Prime Minister Abe a new security posture. This involves, internally, adapting Japan's constitutional position on defence and, externally, building str...onger international relationships in the Asia-Pacific region and more widely. This book presents a comprehensive analysis of these developments. It shows how trust and co-operation with the United States, the only partner with which Japan has a formal alliance, is being rebuilt, discusses how other relationships, both on security and on wider issues, are being formed, in the region and with European countries and the EU, with the relationships with India and Australia being of particular importance, and concludes by assessing the likely impact on the region of Japan's changing posture and new relationships.
