The main goal of the paper is to present goals and objectives of the American foreign policy towards the Asia -Pacific region (1989 -2009). The period under discussion may be characterized by drastic changes in a global and regional geopolitical environment. In that context it is worth to monitor changes or lack of changes in the U.S. foreign policy towards this more and more important region of the world. The article refers to administrations of three U.S. presidents: George Herbert Bush (1989 -1993), William Jefferson Clinton (1993 -2001) and George Walker Bush (2001 -2009). The analysis takes into account mechanisms of shaping U.S. policy towards Asia -Pacific, a theoretical background of U.S. foreign policy and basic program documents of the U.S. administration.
