Overview

The security environment in the Asia-Pacific region remains as precarious and fragile as ever. Nondemocratic regimes still outnumber democratic ones, and a "Pacific Community" among liberal states has yet to emerge. Multilateral security forums have evolved, but pre-existing bilateral defense alliances continue to form the principal pillars of national security for most nations in the region. As if that weren't enough, the region-wide financial crisis has added another element of uncertainty to security systems. In short, Pacific Asia rivals the Middle East and South Asia as the most insecure region in the world today.

This volume presents a survey of major issues confronting the Asia-Pacific region as it enters the new millennium: ASEAN's role in collective security; concerns over China and the disputed territories in the South China Sea; conflict on the Korean peninsula; Japan's role in the post-Cold War security order; U.S. interests in Pacific security; and the relationship between Asian and European countries and government organizations.

Table of Contents

All for Naught tells the story of Richard Melmont, a billionaire many times over. His wife Maria, daughter Barbara, and son Daniel are appalled by his cutthroat methods and even more appalled by the weapons system he is developing. Is he deliberately deceiving government officials, bankers, and the general public, or is he deceiving himself? In The Rise and Fall of President Barry Blue, an experienced White House correspondent is trying to sort through contradictory insider accounts to get a true picture of an elusive president.
