From the Publisher“This is a path-breaking study of the interplay of regional and global security dynamics pertaining to Asia, which has become a core world region. It does an excellent job investigating regional-global connections in both traditional and non-traditional security domains.”
Muthiah Alagappa, Distinguished Senior Fellow, East-West Center
“An important contribution to understanding the security politics of the Asia-Pacific. This volume succeeds in its core objective of analyzing ‘how Asian security politics will affect international security or will, in turn, be influenced by global events and structures’. An excellent panel of authors who combine penetrating analysis of existing international relations theories on the global-regional nexus with a firm grasp of the regional environment.”
Barry Desker, Dean of the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies
“A truly innovative work on Asian security. Readers will be convinced that Asian security has now become ‘autonomous’ enough to be an ‘integral’ component of an evolving world order.”
Yoshihide Soeya, Professor of Political Science, Faculty of Law and Director, Institute of East Asian Studies, Keio University
