Asian transformations from 1937 to 1950
- A family that is closely linked with the US authorities
- A strong commitment to the American political and economic life
- The incarnation of the "model family" in the American myth of the Kennedys
- A controversial ?clan?
- The hidden faces of the Kennedy clan
- The end of a myth?
The period from 1937 to 1950 commenced with the Sino-Japanese ties and ended with the Korean War. These two conflicts also inaugurated two periods of distress for the Asian World Order with the World War II and the Cold War. Therefore, the notion of an "Asian Order" may seem paradoxical. How do we speak of "order" in a period of chaos? And how about talking about "Asian" when the order is in fact a global issue further shaped by foreign powers than Asians themselves? In international relations, the notion of "order" means "sets of organizing principles that govern  the relations between nations." This "order" is a reality that does not return to the idealized notion of being "ordered". Moreover, such an order has multiple economic, legal, and cultural dimensions and the politico-strategic dimensions in particular. Also, the object of our approach is to analyze the broad guidelines of the Organization of Asia between 1937 and 1950. The aim of this study will be to understand what issues and which actors have shaped the Asian order between 1937 and 1950. The imperialism and the Cold War have mainly affected the Asian order between 1937 and 1950, making it undergo an extensive change, both in terms of territory and power relations.
