The Future of the Australian-U.S. Security Relationship. Authored by Dr. Rod Lyon, Prof. William T. Tow.
The authors assess the future of the Australian-U.S. security relationship within the context of the Canberra's transformation and strategic shift. They conclude that this relationship will remain important and will be strengthened in some ways, but they consider the building of large-scale American military bases in Australia unlikely. The challenge, they note, will be sustaining political support.

Impact of Strategic Culture on U.S. Policies for East Asia. Authored by Colonel Frank L. Miller, Jr..
The author, using examples from the Asia-Pacific region, illustrates the need for regional and, at times, subregional approaches to collective security. He concludes that treating these relationships from a global perspective, and thus ignoring local norms, can cause unnecessary friction.

Crisis Deterrence in the Taiwan Strait. Authored by Chaplain (Colonel) Douglas McCready.
Chinese leaders believe that, by using asymmetrical means, they will be able to overcome the military advantage of the United States and Taiwan. Deterrence, as used against the Soviet Union during the Cold War, will not be effective with China without significant modification. The cultural divide affects not only deterrence theory, but also how China and the United States understand and communicate.

With the armed forces of the People's Republic of China (PLA) celebrating its 75th anniversary on August 1, 2002, it only seemed appropriate and timely to take stock of the world's largest military. The PLA has officially been in existence for three-quarters of a century, and its history is one filled with turmoil and warfare.
