Synopsis: The Troubled Triangle: Economic and Security Concerns for The United States, Japan and China examines how the three largest economies of the world weave triangulated relationships to one another atop uneasy foundations. The crux of the instability lies in the dissonance between economic allure and security thrust. Economic allure exists for each of the three nations, respectively, in the United States' global currency, Japan's high technology, and China's manufacturing factory and market. Security thrust means that the United States has primacy, Japan has alliance and China seeks autonomy. Drawn from the three countries' most renowned experts on the subject, this collective volume presents a balanced and well-contextualized analysis of the troubled triangle.
