East Asia is defined as the region encompassing China, Koreas, Japan, Taiwan, Southeast Asia and the Russian Far East. There are signs of regional conflict in East Asia. Meanwhile, there are signs that may lead to regional cooperation in the twenty­first century. This course examines the tensions between increasing interdependence among the nations in East Asia and the preservation of national sovereignty and conflicts over territories, identities and history. The central question is whether the East Asian region is heading towards greater peace and cooperation or war and conflict in the twenty-first century. We will also focus on the role of the United States in the region since it has been extensively involved in the region since the 1850s.
