    Abstract: 本論文以國際體系理論、結盟理論及決策理論貫穿全文,旨在探討影響不平等結盟履行的因素。藉由小布希政府對中華民國軍售的案例研究,分析美國如何履行美臺之間不平等的結盟。
    This thesis aims to analyze the factors that influence the implementation of unequal alliances by applying international relations theories, alliance theory, as well as the decision-making theory. Through the case study of the George W. Bush administration’s arms sales to Taiwan, one can have a better understanding on how and what influence the unequal alliance between the U.S. and Taiwan.
    First of all, the thesis illustrates the international system’s influences on U.S. arms sales to Taiwan. After the Cold War, the international system has shifted from bipolar to “uni-multipolar,” and the U.S. remains the sole superpower; however, within only two decades, China has risen as a worthy opponent who threatens the U.S. economically and militarily. The outbreak of the 9/11 terrorist attacks have made the U.S. more dependent on China’s and international support to counter terrorism. From these aspects will this thesis analyze the impacts of international factors on the unequal alliance’s implementation.
    Secondly, this thesis examines how the U.S. domestic politics affects the outcome of arms sales to Taiwan through Graham Allison’s decision-making theory. Among the opinions of leading organizations, the White House, National Security Council, and Departments of State and Defense, the Congress’s role as representative of public opinions must also be taken into considerations while the leading organizations shape the U.S.’s foreign policy.
    Finally, through the aspects of changes of international system, the U.S. domestic politics and the unequal distribution of power among allied countries will this thesis analyze the implementation of unequal alliances.
