This work addresses to the basic objective of generating a dialogue between the US and the South Asian countries.This dialogue needs to be free from the earlier difficult, unreasonable and almost polemical exchanges between the proponents of foreign policy idea in the South Asian countries and in the United States. The process of economic liberalization, the advent of American business interests in South Asian countries and the absence of a second super-power, relatively equivalent to the United States - to fall back upon in times of crisis - apparently convinced the South Asian states to the need to recast their foreign relations in a more realistic and positive framework.TABLE OF CONTENTS:Introduction by Kousar J AzamUS foreign policy at the turn of the 21st century by Donald PuchalaAmerica at the Millennium by M Glen JohnsonEvolving Paradigms of US foreign policy - Pakistani Perceptions by Nasrullah MirzaSri Lanka's Perception of US foreign Policy by W M KarunadasaBangladesh Perceptions of Us Foreign Policy by Mahfuzul H ChowdhuryGlobalization of World Economy and its implications for S Asia by Pushkar N PantEconomic Liberalization in Sri-Lanka- Impact on Us-Sri Lanka TradeIssues and Approaches to IPR - An Indian Perspective by Prabuddha GanguliGlobalization of Mass Communications and its impact on US-Sri Lanka RelationsGlobalization and communication - The Emerging Challenges by Usha Vyasulu ReddyThe South Asian Dilemma by Mubashir HasanBangladesh's security at the turn of the Century - The role of US by A K Azad US Role in Sri Lanka's Security - Imperatives and Outlook by Minna ThacheerNepal's Security at the Turn of the Century by Mohan LohaniPokhran II and India-US Relations: Challenges and Opportunities by M J VinodIndia's Security in the New Global Order by Nirmal JindalPost-Pokhran Situation: Impact on US-India Relations by C Uday BhaskarNon-Military Issues in South Asian Security and US Response by L W S PrabhakarTHE EDITOR:Kousar J Azam is a senior Academic Fellow in Social Sciences at the American Studies Research Center.
