    [From the Introduction]. Having just returned from two weeks in Japan and South Korea, I find that I have a somewhat different perspective on issues relating to European integration and security than I would have had before my trip. Like most of the members of this panel and many in the audience, I have spent almost all of my professional life studying the relations between the United States and Europe, including the Soviet Union. In-depth discussions with Asian political and intellectual leaders underline how parochial many of our Eurocentric discussions have become. It is clear that very fundamental changes are underway in Europe and that these will have a substantial effect on U.S.-European relations generally, but it is almost certainly the case that the change in the nature of our relationship with Europe is likely to be less significant over the next 10-15 years than will be the changes in our relationship with key partners in East Asia, notably Japan and Korea.
