Naval War College Review


Grant F. Rhode


The United States and Asia presents a cogent analysis of U.S. strategic plan- ning in Asia, sweeping from Japan to Pakistan. The study’s specific focus is development of policy options and recommendations, looking out at an ap- proximate twenty-year horizon into the future, especially analyzing and noting implications for Air Force planning. A result of Project AIR FORCE’S work on future asian security, this book was pre- pared by a team of RAND specialists, with the help of senior U.S. Air Force leadership, and with editorial comment by U.S. foreign policy officials. It bene- fits from the strengths of the team ap- proach without the flaws of design by committee.
