A Pacific Nation: Perspectives on the US Role in an East Asia Community
Edited by Mark Borthwick and Tadashi Yamamoto

Historic shifts within East Asia have driven efforts to build up regional institutions. Despite its longstanding ties to the region, the United States has been largely absent from these efforts until recently, when American officials declared that the United States is "back in Asia" and began a flurry of activities to strengthen US involvement in the region's emerging institutions. Many questions remain, however, about the role the United States will ultimately play in the evolving regional architecture and how the region will react to this.

In this volume, experts from Asia and the United States explore the latest changes in US involvement in regional affairs and analyze the region's divergent perspectives on the role that the United States should play in a new East Asia community
