My website provides a one-stop source for my select analyses concerning American interests in the Asian-Pacific region that have appeared in a number of publications.  The People’s Republic of China, in particular, has challenged U.S. security interests.  These articles might include my own personal views concerning security policies and do not necessarily represent other positions.  Also, you will find news reports, Congressional websites, commentaries, and Supreme Court cases in which I am cited or quoted, along with some speaking engagements at conferences.  These independent writings and participations are in addition to the numerous reports, memoranda, and presentations when I worked for Congress at the non-partisan Congressional Research Service (CRS) as well as other parts of the United States Government that started in the late 1980s.  The overall objective is to inform policymakers, military leaders, diplomats, and others in the advancement of U.S. security interests.

Sincerely, Shirley Kan (HOYA SAXA!)
