The author, using examples from the Asia-Pacific region, illustrates the need for regional and, at times, subregional approaches to collective security. He concludes that treating these relationships from a global perspective, and thus ignoring local norms, can cause unnecessary friction. He provides a set of policy recommendations to achieve U.S. goals in the region.
