"The contributors present an overview of a part of Asia encompassing the major areas of conflict as well as successful economic development….Although events have detracted from the timeliness of some parts of some essays, the volume provides an excellent analysis of some key issues that continue to define the region." ~Robert E. Bedeski, University of Victoria, British Columbia, in Pacific Affairs (http://www.jstor.org/stable/3557808)
"While the end of the Cold War and its impact on the global geopolitical structure has increased the strategic importance of the Asia-Pacific region in world politics, the challenges facing the region are enormous and complex. Although there are many studies on these issues, no other single book can claim to have both comprehensive and in-depth coverage. This volume nicely combines breadth and depth through a survey of regional trends and examination of country and sub-regional cases.....One of its major strengths is that it exposes readers to a nuanced analysis of complex Asia-Pacific problems from a rich array of conceptual and methodological approaches." ~Richard W.X. Hu, University of Hong Kong, in Journal of Asian Studies (http://www.jstor.org/stable/2700207)
