Course Description

This seminar will focus on postwar relations among the  countries  in East Asia.  Asia was long divided by colonialis, the Cold War, and America's " hub and spoke" alliance system.  Nationalist sentiments and suspicions remain strong; one schoolar characterized the region as " the cockpit of great power rivalries."  Northeast Asia has seen no shooting wars  between states since the Korean armistice in 1953; Southeast Asia has been at peace since the pullback of Vietnam from Cambodia in 1979
