Military basing and the United States - Japan alliance
Zartman, Matthew Lund
Thesis (M.A.)--Georgetown University, 2010.; Includes bibliographical references.; Text (Electronic thesis) in PDF format. Examining the U.S. - Japan Alliance from the end of the Cold War through the 1995 U.S. initiative designed to reverse post Cold War plans to drawdown global conventional force deployments. The Nye Initiative, as the plan became known, committed the United States to a minimum presence of 100, 000 troops in Asia. Joseph Nye (the driving force of the initiative as Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs) developed the plan to reassure Japan and other states in the region after a series of security crises in the early 1990's. Examining the strategic factors, objectives and ultimately the outcomes of the Nye Initiative, particularly how it contributed to changes in Japan's defense planning, will guide analysis as to how future U.S. troop deployments in Asia may impact U.S. foreign policy objectives in the region.
