PS 304 American-East Asian Relations

This course is to introduce American-East Asian re­lations from the 19th century to the present. During the Cold War, East Asia experienced intense competition and conflict between the superpowers. In the post-Cold War era, the region has been an engine of the global economy, while undergoing a major shift in the balance of power whose trajectory and outcome remain uncertain. This course strives to catch this momentum by examining the sources of conflict and cooperation in both the pre- and post-Cold War periods and by assessing competing explanations for key events in U.S.-East Asian relations.
