Asia-pacific Strategic Relations

by

Asia-pacific Strategic Relations Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This comprehensive book is an overview of security issues in the Asia-Pacific. It is also an argument for a strategy that promises to achieve greater regional stability. It argues that current approaches by policy-makers increase the likelihood of conflict. Instead, it proposes that a strategy of 'convergent security' be adopted to build a more enduring and peaceful regional security framework. A concise survey of key approaches to regional security politics, it presents a vast selection of empirical discussion, both historical and current. Assessing the outlook for the three powers most likely to vie for regional dominance - the United States, China and Japan - the book also reviews the prospects for other secondary powers, including Korea and Taiwan and analyses the role of Australia and the ASEAN nations of Southeast Asia. Unique, accessible, authoritative and broad-ranging survey designed for a wide body of analysts and students of contemporary Asian politics and strategy.

Synopsis:

This comprehensive overview of security relations in the Asia-Pacific argues for a strategy that promises to achieve greater regional stability - 'convergent security'. It presents historical and current issues and cases and is designed for a wide body of analysts and students of contemporary Asian politics and strategy.

Synopsis:

This book offers a variety of perspectives on Asias increasing diplomatic prowess, a phenomenon that has accompanied the regions rapid economic and political development. The editor divides the collection into three broad sections: One group of contributors investigates the regional and international implications of a rising Asia. Another questions whether “Asia” is a useful way to describe several distinct sub-regions. And a third group probes the regional foreign policies of key players across the continent. Together, these contributions point toward areas of potential conflict and collaboration, providing an invaluable resource for diplomats, policy makers, and scholars.

Synopsis:

This comprehensive and authoritative book is an overview of security relations in the Asia-Pacific.
