Abstract William T. Tow is a senior lecturer in the department of government, University of Queensland, Brisbane. He is the author of Encountering the Dominant Player: U.S. Extended Deterrence Strategy in the Asia-Pacific (New York: Columbia University Press, 1991). As scholars and analysts come to terms with a world less focused on East-West strategic competition, they have become more inclined to search for alternative explanations to deterrence, which underscored postwar bipolarity, to explain current trends in international security. ‘Concert politics’, ‘collective security’, ‘interdependence’, ‘realism vs. idealism’ and other classical approaches to international relations usually introduced to first-year students in the field are once again in fashion. The politics of deterrence which underscored superpower politics during most of the postwar era is no longer thought to offer much understanding of the character of the evolving international system.
