While the Iraq war and Middle East conflicts command the attention of the United States and most of the rest of the developed world, fundamental changes are occurring in East Asia. North Korea has tested nuclear weapons, even as it and South Korea have effectively entered a period of tepid détente; relations among China, Japan, and South Korea are a complex mixture of conflict and cooperation; and Japan is developing more forthright security policies, even as it deepens ties with the United States. Together, these developments pose vital questions for world stability and security.

In East Asian Multilateralism, prominent international foreign affairs scholars examine the range of implications of shifting alignments in East Asia. The first part delves into the intraregional dynamics, and the second assesses current economic conditions and policies within individual East Asian states. The third section examines the challenge of regional cooperation from the perspectives of local players, while the fourth analyzes the implications for foreign policy in the United States and in Asia.

This thorough review and assessment charts the preconditions and prospects for deeper multilateralism, poses tough questions about America's security and national interests in the region, and carries a plea for more serious institution-building in the North Pacific, using the ongoing six-party process in talks on North Korea as a point of departure.

Review:

"A 'must' for any college-level collection strong in Asian politics."

(Midwest Book Review)

"A worthwhile read for anyone interested in recent momentum towards regionalism in East Asia."

(Survival)

"Aside from its inherent appeal to American policy wonks, the volume offers some interesting thoughts about the theory and practice of multilateralism in east Asia."

(Nicola P. Contessi International Journal)

"East Asian Multilateralism provides a comprehensive analysis of the major challenges for the establishment of a multilateral regional order. In particular interest is the additional focus on policy recommendations (for the US diplomacy)."

(Alfred Gerstl East Asia Integration Studies)

"The volume is well-organised, readable, and remarkably jargon-free and benefits from a multinational set of contributors with considerable expertise in the region."

(Brian Bridges Asian Affairs)

"Assembles an impressive crew of American and American-based policy experts on the subject."

(Simon Tay Pacific Affairs)
