Overview

Asia-Pacific in the New World Order critically explores the notion that a distinctive regional power bloc is developing, linking countries bordering the Pacific, with East Asia at its core. This student-friendly volume sheds light on the complex interplay between

global, regional and national forces which have transformed the Asia-Pacific arena into one of the most vibrant and economically successful regions in the world. Historical narratives alongside geopolitical and geoeconomic perspectives are deployed to examine the shifting pattern of

power relations and security structures across the region, set within a wider world context. Key issues addressed include: the primary security problems of the region and how are they being resolved; the dynamic growth of the region, and particularly the rise of China as a challenge to

existing structures of world order. The text has a strong interdisciplinary flavor drawing on analytical approaches from international relations, political economy and political geography literature. Authors have been drawn from the Asia-Pacific region and the UK and all are established

scholars in their specialist fields.
