The Supply Side of Security

In this chapter, the author conducts a “structured, focused comparison” of the US alliances with Japan, South Korea, and Spain with respect to domestic opposition to alliance cooperation, the leader’s attitude toward the alliance, the leader’s vulnerability, and intra-alliance bargaining. The case studies explain why a leader matters in intra-alliance bargaining and why it is important to analyze the leader’s attitude and vulnerability in combination. The chapter also shows that a state tends to receive less benefit from its alliance as its state resources increase, even though its influence in the alliance tends to grow with its capability. The final section discusses the implications of the findings as well as future research agendas.

Keywords:   leaders, domestic opposition, United States, Japan, South Korea, Spain, bargaining power
