As Asia's influence grows, it becomes increasingly important to understand its regional security challenges. The rise of China and, increasingly, India, coupled with US relations with allies, partners and adversaries in the area, push the implications of Asia's security far and wide. Asia's Security provides a sophisticated and lively account of the region's leading security issues. Chapters organised around thematic questions identify the particular security challenges facing individual countries and illuminate opportunities for collaborative responses, from military alliances to multilateral cooperation. The wide range of security factors examined includes major power rivalry and the possibility of interstate conflict, territorial disputes and the role of nationalism, internal conflict, insurgencies and intervention, transnational challenges from terrorism to climate change, and nuclear proliferation, maritime arms competition and cyber-security. Contemporary in focus, historically grounded and comprehensive in scope - incorporating coverage of North and Southeast Asia, South and Central Asia and the South Pacific - this book explains the security developments most likely to ripple out across Asia, its borderlands and beyond.
