Alignment despite Antagonism: The United States-Korea-Japan Security Triangle

By Victor D. Cha | Go to book overview

Notes

Introduction: The Puzzle and Its Importance
1.
In particular I draw heavily from the works of Glenn Snyder: "Alliances, Balance, and Stability", "Alliance Theory: A Neorealist First Cut" (hereafter "Alliance Theory"), "The Security Dilemma in Alliance Politics", and Alliance Politics.
2.

3.
For example, as I was unable to access the works of former defense attaché Tsukamoto Katsuichi or Keiō University professor Okonogi Masao, I sought them out for interviews during research trips to Tokyo. I also interviewed such former Japanese ambassadors to the ROK and United States as Sunobe Royōzō and Yasukawa Takeshi.

Chapter 1. The Enigma of History
1.
For classic and more recent expositions of Realism, see Mearsheimer, "The False Promise"; Morgenthau, Politics Among Nations; and Waltz, Theory of International Politics.
2.
This is, for illustrative purposes, a simple application of balance-of-threat logic as developed by Stephen Walt in Origins of Alliances. The quasi-alliance argument is not a refutation of Walt's theory, but a modification of some of its basic tenets.
3.
This book focuses on Japan-ROK relations at the government level. Private channels of dialogue between Japan and the ROK also play an important role in policyrnaking. These channels are semiofficial and have involved influential political insiders and business leaders. From the 1950s to the 1970s key participants included Kishi Nobusuke, former premier and half-brother of Sato Eisaku; Chang Key-young, former premier; Uemura Kogoro, chairman, Keidan
