ABSTRACT

China and its spectacular economic rise, its concurrent military modernization is arguably the most important political event in East Asia since the end of the Cold War. Of particular importance is the question of what it means for the United States. Will China be a benign or adversarial power? Will China challenge the United States in the near or long-term future? How do the nations of Asia feel about the potential for China to be the next hegemon?This paper seeks to examine relationships of changing U.S-China and their implications on Northeast Asian Politics. And this paper shows several aspects of alliance politics embedded in South-North Korean politics and great power politics between the United States and China in Northeast Asia. My point is that the Sino-American relationship will have heavily influenced South-North Korean politics, but its impact on South and North Korea will be very different.
