Synopsis: Unlocking the major strategic themes and security challenges of the early 21st century, this book provides the analytical frameworks needed to make sense of this complex but exciting strategic universe. Offering a unique mix of global strategic thinking and Asia-Pacific security analysis, it provides a comprehensive and authoritative introduction to the dynamic security developments in the region, around which much global strategy is based. Vital questions facing the international community are addressed, including why governments and groups still use armed force, how much warfare has changed in the information age, why countries should be concerned about nontraditional security challenges such as water shortages and the spread of infectious disease, whether a great clash between the United States and China is imminent, the prospects for peace on the Korean peninsula and between India and Pakistan, and what security means for Pacific Island countries, Australia, and New Zealand.

About the Author: Robert Ayson is the author of Thomas Schelling and the Nuclear Age and is a senior fellow at the Australian National University's Strategic and Defence Studies Centre. Desmond Ball is the author of Death in Balibo and the coauthor of Breaking the Codes. He is a professor at the Australian National University's Strategic and Defence Studies Centre.

Book Description Allen & Unwin/Viva Books, 2007. Softcover. Book Condition: New. From the war on terror to the rise of China, this book unlocks the major strategic themes and security challenges of the early twenty-first century. Strategy and Security in the Asia-Pacific provides the analytical frameworks needed to make sense of this complex but exciting strategic universe. Offering a unique mix of global strategic thinking and Asia-Pacific security analysis, this book is for readers from Sydney to Seoul who want to put their own local security challenges in a wider regional and global context. It is also for North American and European readers requiring an understanding of the dynamic security developments in the Asia-Pacific region around which so much of global strategy is increasingly based. The really vital questions facing the international community are dealt with here: Why do governments and groups still use armed force? Has warfare really changed in the information age? Why should we be concerned about non-traditional security challenges such as water shortages and the spread of infectious disease? Is a great clash imminent between the United States and China? What are the prospects for peace on the Korean peninsula and between India and Pakistan? Can Southeast Asia survive the challenges of transnational terrorism? What does security mean for the Pacific island countries and for Australia and New Zealand? With contributions from leading commentators and analysts, Strategy and Security in the Asia-Pacific offers a comprehensive and authoritative introduction to the field.
