Review

"David Lovell's anthology is a very valuable analysis of interstate security issues in the Asia-Pacific region after 11 September 2001. Both the Chinese and the Australian perspectives are very useful, analytically highly sophisticated and rewarding to scholars, professionals and policy-makers interested in Asia-Pacific security issues" (Journal of Peace Research).

About the Publication

Since September 11, 2001, our newspapers have been filled with the war on terror; our governments have mobilized their resources for homeland security; and people everywhere are braced for more terrorist attacks.
           Yet while the new threat is genuine, we must not lose sight of the continuing security concerns in the Asia-Pacific. Tensions persist on the Korean peninsula, in the Taiwan Straits and the South China Sea, and in Kashmir. The region is well supplied with weapons of mass destruction and may face an arms race, and there are a range of pressing human security issues. Likewise, the strategic realities of the region remain linked with US power, and with the emergence of China as a key regional player.
           Asia-Pacific Security examines the developing strategic relationships in the region, and clarifies the dilemmas for Australian policy-makers as they try to balance genuine engagement with the region against a long-standing and valued alliance with the United States.
           This book has particular relevance for foreign-policy professionals and international relations scholars of the region.
