This vol. documents U.S. satisfaction with the Republic of Korea劌製 (ROK; South Korea) increasing confidence as an international actor, a result of the South劌製 burgeoning economic prosperity and its (uneven) growth in political stability. ROK President Park successfully thwarted efforts to improve the relationship between Japan and North Korea. Instead, South Korea made its own contacts with the North Korean Government, an initiative that yielded few tangible results but did promote regional stability. Nonetheless, the Nixon admin. was not fully successful at allaying Seoul劌製 misgivings about two of Nixon劌製 most important foreign policy initiatives: the improvement in relations between the U.S. and China, and the U.S. departure from Vietnam. Park劌製 fears about U.S. reliability added to tensions that resulted from economic competition, especially in the textile trade. The ROK劌製 skepticism of the U.S. security guarantee was used to justify authoritarian domestic policies. When Park, victorious in the 1971 election, declared martial law in Oct. 1972, the U.S. Government expressed frustration with this blow to the Republic of Korea劌製 political institutions. U.S. officials feared that alliance with South Korea could be seen by some as implicating them in Park劌製 actions. This is a print on demand report.
