In times when most analysis of the current state and future development of the Asia Pacific region focuses on Japan, China, Korea, and the role of the United States, often applying classical balance of power approaches to explain alliances and frictions, Doyle's book takes a broader look at all players in the region including Australia. The book begins with a concise analysis of the significant steps in the postwar history of each country, which allows the reader to get a much better sense about the many historical issues undermining cooperation to this day. I recommend the book to anyone who wants to look behind and beyond the day-to-day politics of the region to get a deeper understanding of the historical background and development of today's problems and issues. -- Wilhelm Vosse, International Christian University
[Doyle's] analysis of the complex interactions of the two great powers, along with Australia, Japan, and South Korea, is judicious and informed, enriched by substantial personal experience in the region. His study gives a valuable perspective on topics that are sure to be of growing significance in the years ahead. -- Noam Chomsky, MIT
Professor Randall Doyle is peering into an overlooked corner of U.S. foreign policy-its relations with Australia, Japan, and Korea. It is an important area of study because all three of these nations live in the shadow of the Asian giant-China, which by its size, its military might, its swift-growing economy, is the great counter-balance to U.S. hegemony in Asia in the 21st century. -- Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States and professor emeritus of Political Science, Boston University
