DESCRIPTION

A second edition of this book is now available. As the world's most vital region, Asia embodies explosive economic growth, diverse political systems, vibrant societies, modernizing militaries, cutting-edge technologies, rich cultural traditions amid globalization, and strategic competition among major powers. As a result, international relations in Asia are evolving rapidly. In this deeply informed study, leading scholars offer the most current and definitive analysis available of Asia's regional relationships. They set developments in Asia in theoretical context, assess the role of leading external and regional powers, and consider the importance of subregional actors and linkages. Students and policy practitioners alike will find this book invaluable for understanding politics in contemporary Asia. Contributions by: Amitav Acharya, Sebastian Bersick, Nayan Chanda, Ralph Cossa, Sumit Ganguly, Michael Green, Samuel S. Kim, Edward J. Lincoln, Martha Brill Olcott, Philip C. Saunders, David Shambaugh, Sheldon W. Simon, Scott Snyder, Robert G. Sutter, Hugh White, and Michael Yahuda
