Course Description: This course explores a number of questions related to international relations of the Asia-Pacific region, including the United States, China and Japan with the help of existing theories of international relations. What are distinctive characteristics of East Asia’s international relations? How are they similar to and different from the region’s past and other region’s experiences? What is the nature of economic relationships in the region? Does East Asia’s recent ascent offer opportunity for peace or precondition for war? How does the region's past cast shadow over its present and future? These questions are organized around the three main themes of “cold politics, hot economy, and wild history” as they represent the major forces that pull or push the countries in the region. The ways in which the balance of these forces has shaped the present configuration of the region and the ways in which it will affect the future of the region are analyzed.
