Résumé

This fully revised fourth edition of Michael Yahuda's extremely successful textbook brings the region fully up-to-date, introducing students to the international politics of the Asia-Pacific region since 1945. As well as assessing the post-cold War uncertainties that challenged balance and power with the region, Yahuda also examines the first two decades of the new millennium which includes no let up on the 'war on terror', new political administrations in all the key player-states and increased cooperative security between some nations, polarised by volatile relationships between others. Analyzing politics in terms of global, regional and local trends, this new edition features:

  • A thorough revision of the coverage of the Cold War period
  • In-depth discussion of Obama's 'pivot to Asia'
  • Analysis of Japan's more assertive foreign policy
  • Examination of the continued Rise of China in terms of politics, security and economic dominance and territorial conflicts in the region
  • Ongoing debates concerning the 'war on terror' and how this shifts, forms and reforms relationships Asia-Pacific security issues
  • The rise of India

This new fourth edition will continue to be a core text for students of Asian politics, international relations and Cold war history.
