This introductory chapter discusses the issue of the balance of power in East Asia. It explains that while China has reemerged as a major power, its neighbors have not ramped up their defense spending or scrambled to form a countervailing coalition in response to increasing Chinese capabilities. This book investigates the non-occurrence of the expected outcome according to balance-of-power reasoning and explores the role of the United States in the balance of power in the region.
