This overview of the domestic and international issues confronting the major Asian nations attempts some forecasting, but it is necessarily broad-gauged and cautious. Trends: for Japan and China, more of the same; for India, authoritarian subcontinental hegemony; for the U.S., vacillation; for the U.S.S.R., aggrandizement.
