Dr. Scalapino has written numerous books and
articles on Asian politics and U.S.-Asian policy. His
most recent books are Asia and the Road Ahead (1975), The
Foreign Policy of Modern Japan (1977), The United States and Korea:

Dr. Scalapino has visited Vietnam many times since
1958. He believes that the devastating and tragic results
that one sees in Vietnam today are the outcome of the
non-communists losing the war, and that U.S. policies
contributed to that loss.
