Sanctions are a persistent - many would argue increasingly central
- component of American efforts to shape foreign policy outcomes in
the Asia-Pacific. The use of sanctions in the context of two of the
most pressing regional security issues currently on Washington's
radar - the ongoing North Korean nuclear crisis and the management
of China's emergence - clearly reaffirms this pattern. This book
provides the first comprehensive treatment of US sanctions policy
in the Asia-Pacific. Using the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush
presidencies as a basis for comparison, it examines nine prominent
episodes involving the US use of sanctions toward countries in this
economically and strategically vital part of the world. In each
case it addresses the reasons why sanctions were employed in the
first place, the precise nature of sanctions and how they operated
in practice, before evaluating their effectiveness. Finally, it
identifies common trends that emerge from this analysis and draws
out practical implications for US sanctions policy, in particular
when and how the US can - and cannot - optimally use sanctions in
an Asia-Pacific context.
