This paper, after reviewing the characteristics and evolution of the Japan-U.S. security alliance to date, explores the definition and functions of an alliance using two popular theories of international relations, examines how each theory fits or does not fit this particular alliance, and then makes clear what we can learn from each theory to strengthen the alliance in the coming era.  It concludes by recommending a standing framework for continuous strategic consultations between the two countries as well as with third countries, with a wider capability, including economic and other aspects, in order to make the alliance more comprehensive and better orchestrated.

This thesis answers the questions:  what would be the strategic implications for Japan and by extension the United States if China and Taiwan were to reunify peacefully?  The ramifications for both countries will be different based on a number of factors, including historical, military, and socio-political considerations.  The relationship between Japan and the United States would be altered based on the peaceful reunification of China and Taiwan.  This thesis concludes that Japan would find itself in a less secure security context while the United States would be able to focus its military attention elsewhere.

When the Iraq War began in 2003, the Japanese government declared support for the United States without a new U.N.
