Cooperative Security In Northeast Asia
Cooperative Security In Northeast Asia
By R. Mark Bean
National Defense University Press, 1990, 198 pp.

The author, a colonel in the U.S. Air Force, calls for a China-Japan-South Korea security coalition against the Soviet Union. While such a strategy might have been appropriate for an earlier decade, it no longer seems viable at a time of substantial change in the Soviet Union and improving relations between Moscow and all of the northeast Asian countries.
