Abstract

Nuclear proliferation in Asia threatens to overturn existing nonproliferation regimes and to create temptations toward first-strike strategies among states in the region. Missile defenses may help to reduce the risks of war if they are combined with defensive military strategies. On the other hand, as complements to strategies based on preemption or prompt offensives, missile defenses in Asia may contribute to crisis instability and war.
