Abstract : The author considers some of the implications of a multilateral and even collective framework for Asian policy and security in light of the Clinton administration's intent to recast U.S. policy in the Asian-Pacific region in a more multilateral framework. The author analyzes some of the overall problems and suggests pitfalls and opportunities that exist for the United States as it prepares for this historic shift in policy in this increasingly critical area of the world. He concludes that while multilateralism is not feasible in defense issues at present, it merits consideration in international economic relations that could serve as a bridge to further developments in the future....
