As the political and economic landscape in the Asian Pacific continues to shift, the United States must re-evaluate its strategy toward the region. In his book, Martin Lasater explores U.S. interests in Asia, considering strategies for attaining U.S. goals in the post-containment era. Citing numerous strategic options for the United States, Lasater recommends a strategy of integration as being best suited for the region through the end of the century.
