Overview

The Handbook of Asian Security Studies provides a detailed exploration of security dynamics in the three distinct subregions that comprise Asia, and also bridges the study of these regions by exploring the geopolitical links between each of them.

This Handbook is divided geographically into four main parts:

Part I: Northeast Asia
Part II: South Asia
Part III: Southeast Asia
Part IV: Cross Regional Issues

Despite the richness and complexity of security issues in Asia, and the theoretical and conceptual debates these have spawned, there is no single volume that scholars can turn to for succinct, cogent and dispassionate analysis of these issues. The Handbook of Asian Security Studies fills this important gap in the literature, dealing with all major security issues in the area which range from unresolved territorial disputes (maritime and inland), irredentist claims and intra-state conflicts to transnational terrorist movements and nuclear rivalries.

This volume contains essays by many leading scholars in the field and will be essential reading for all students of Asian security, Asian politics, and International Relations in general.

Sumit Ganguly is a professor of Political Science and holds the Rabindranath Tagore Chair in Indian Cultures and Civilizations at Indiana University, Bloomington. He is the author, co-author, editor or co-editor of some 15 books on South Asian politics. He is also the founding editor of the only refereed, social science journal devoted to the study of contemporary India, The India Review and a founding editor of Asian Security.

Andrew Scobell is Associate Professor of International Affairs and Director of the China Certificate Program at the Bush School of Government and Public Affairs at Texas A&M University located in College Station, Texas. He is co-editor of the journal Asian Security and has edited or co-edited 12 books on Asian security topics.

Joseph Chinyong Liow is Associate Professor and Head of Research at the Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Nanyang Technical University, Singapore. He is co-editor of Order and Security in Southeast Asia (Routledge 2005) and author of The Politics of Indonesia-Malaysia Relations: One Kin, Two Nations (Routledge 2005).
