Abstract : With the reversion of Okinawa to Japanese control in 1972, comes the possibility of limited military utility for the United States. Consolidation of many US military facilities under an Enclave concept presents an alternative which may reduce friction with the Okinawans and retain a greater degree of operational freedom for US forces. A parallel development of the significant historical and geographic aspects of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and Okinawa set the stage for a comparative discussion of US residual use arrangements and the treaties and international agreements involved. The major political, economic and military implications associated with the transfer of Okinawa are highlighted. (Modified author abstract)
