Addresses the future roles & interests of the four major Asia-Pacific powers (the U.S., Japan, China & Russia) & how their policies will affect security in Northeast Asia &, more specifically, on the Korean Peninsula as we enter the 21st century. Each of these powers is undergoing a transition of sorts.

As American women have entered the labor force in greater numbers, the traditional work of wives and mothers--cleaning houses and caring for children--has gradually moved into the global marketplace.

Unlike the working poor who toil in factories and fields, these women see, touch, and breathe the material and emotional world of their employers' homes.
