Asia-Pacific Security

An Introduction

Edited by Joanne Wallis and Andrew Carr
This new textbook gathers an international roster of top security studies scholars to provide an overview of Asia-Pacific's international relations and pressing contemporary security issues. It is a suitable introduction for undergraduate and masters students' use in international relations and security studies courses. Merging a strong theoretical component with rich contemporary and historical empirical examples, Asia-Pacific Security examines the region's key players and challenges as well as a spectrum of proposed solutions for improving regional stability. Major topics include in-depth looks at the United States' relationship with China; Security concerns presented by small and microstates, the region's largest group of nations; threats posed by terrorism and insurgency; the region's accelerating arms race and the potential for an Asian war; the possible roles of multilateralism, security communities, and human security as part of solutions to regional problems.

Reviews

"This text is distinguished by the integration of international relations theory into the study of substantive security issues in the Asia-Pacific. The individual chapters are empirically authoritative and speak to a comprehensive range of 'traditional' and 'new' security concerns. There is no other textbook with this value-added and it fills an important gap for students and researchers alike." — Christopher W. Hughes, Professor of International Politics and Japanese Studies, Chair of the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Warwick
