The Case of the Pivot to Asia: System Effects and the Origins of Strategy
NICHOLAS D. ANDERSON and Victor D. Cha discuss the origins of the pivot to Asia, the Obama administration’s strategy in the Asia-Pacific. They argue that the pivot was neither a failure, as its critics suggest, nor a success, as its supporters claim. For the authors the pivot was a midcourse adjustment to a weak and flawed early Obama Asia policy.
