Editorial Reviews


"Mort Abramowitz and Steve Bosworth have teamed to produce a book--actually, an elegantly-written essay--that is at once short, smart, subtle, sophisticated, and savvy." —Richard Haass, Council on Foreign Relations

"Two of America's foremost seasoned diplomats map out a new course for U.S.-East Asian policy. Finally, we have an American strategy for winning the hearts and minds of East Asia." —Yoichi Funabashi, Asahi Shimbun

"Abramowitz and Bosworth are the best two authors imaginable to tackle an immensely timely subject. Their book lucidly and trenchantly explains the changes underway--and in prospect--in the Asia-Pacific region. It provides a thoughtful, hard-headed forward-looking critique of U.S. policy toward Asia. Not just a must read, but a highly readable one." —Strobe Talbott, Brookings Institution

"With the European-Atlantic world no longer the center of global gravity, rethinking our policy toward East Asia is now a top priority. Abramowitz and Bosworth provide much needed, clearly stated, and timely guidance regarding that centrally important strategic and historical issue." —Zbigniew Brzezinski, CSIS, and National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter

"A brilliant analysis of the shifting pattern of relationships in the region.... Written in a lively and informal style, this slim volume provides an ideal starting point for rethinking the U.S. approach to East Asia." —J. Stapleton Roy, Former U.S. Ambassador to China, Indonesia and Singapore

Format: Paperback
Written by two of America's expert diplomats, Morton Abramowitz and Stephen Bosworth, Chasing the Sun: Rethinking East Asian Policy is a highly realistic assessment of America's recent, current, and future foreign policy in East Asia. From serious-minded concerns and recommendations concerning North Korea's nuclear threat - Chasing the Sun was published shortly before North Korea declared itself a nuclear power, yet its warnings about how best to deal with North Korea remain entirely relevant - to exhorting that the sleeping giant of China cannot be managed, controlled, or "contained" but can and should be influenced, to observing the poor attitude today's younger East Asian generation has toward America as a nation perceived to arrogantly ignore the ideas, preferences, and plans of others, Chasing the Sun gives an accurate and no-nonsense look at what exactly the current political situation is, and what America should do about it. Enthusiastically recommended for library politics and international studies shelves.
