Acknowledgments T he editors are grateful to the Princeton Institute of International and Regional Studies (PIIRS) and the Ilmin Institute of International Relations of Korea University for supporting this project from its inception through publication. The initial meeting at Princeton also received support from the Korean Economic Institute (KEI) and the East Asian Studies Program of Princeton University. Many experts on Korea commented on the project during its various stages in 2005...07. Some attended the initial workshop where broad themes were raised and others joined later meetings where draft chap ters were presented. We are grateful to all of them and, especially, to the contributors to this volume, whose comments on other chapters helped in the preparation of the overview. Special thanks go to Kim Dongjung for the onerous task of making the transliteration from Korean consistent as well as research assistance. Finally, we want to thank Anthony Wahl at Palgrave for his continuous support. G R I T H S L 9781403975553ts01.indd vii9781403975553ts01.indd vii3/12/2008 10:13:21 PM3/12/2008 10:13:21 PM

CHAPTER 1 Overview Gilbert Rozman, In Taek Hyun, and Shin wha Lee T he simple days of choosing sides and depending exclusively on one patron are over for the states of Northeast Asia as for other states that were consequential in the polarized cold war era. The transition in this region began, albeit slowly, with China"s emergence as a third, if lesser pole, after its decisions in 1971 72 to abandon autarchy and in 1982 to seek equidistance between the superpowers. By the mid 1980s Japan"s new insistence on becoming a regional leader with some autonomy from the United States gave more impetus to the transition. Greatly accelerating it were Moscow"s moves to end the cold war followed by a dramatic rise in Beijing"s clout in the 1990s. In addition, from 1993 North Korea became an object of regional attention and competition, demonstrating its independent ability to affect regional affairs. At the center of the region, tethered to the United States and newly attentive to its brethren in North Korea, South Korea squarely faces the challenge of a rapidly changing balance of great powers amidst lingering strategic dilemmas. This puts a premium on leadership that adroitly analyzes the forces of change and plans how best to serve the national interest. Strategic thinking in Seoul over a quarter century from the waning days of the cold war to the uncertain state of the North Korean nuclear crisis opens a window on Northeast Asia"s dynamic transformation. Of the countries of Northeast Asia, South Korea has made the most far reaching shift in strategic thinking since the end of the cold war. 9781403975553ts02.indd 19781403975553ts02.indd 13/12/2008 10:18:43 PM3/12/2008 10:18:43 PM
