All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

Japan-Taiwan Interaction: Implications for the United States


The National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR), Seattle, WA, US

Supplied note:
"The National Bureau of Asian Research is pleased to announce the publication of the latest issue of the NBR Analysis -- "Japan-Taiwan Interaction: Implications for the United States," (Vol 16 No. 1) which features papers authored by Philip Yang, Roy Kamphausen, James Auer & Tetsuo Kotani, Yoshihide Soeya, and Michael McDevitt. (Available for download at NBR's homepage at http://www.nbr.org)
This issue of the NBR Analysis explores the nature of, and trends in, Japan-Taiwan relations and draws implications for the United States, particularly in the event of a crisis occurring in the Taiwan Strait. It argues that a strengthened U.S.-Japan alliance is the best mechanism to ensure Tokyo's support for U.S. military intervention in any crisis in the Taiwan Strait. Any efforts undertaken by Washington to deepen and strengthen ties with Japan will-regardless of their nature-serve the strategic end of improving the alliance, and thus increase the likelihood of the United States receiving assistance from Japan in a crisis.
