The United States and Asia

Author: Robert G. Sutter
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield
ISBN: 9781442226340
Release Date: 2015-07-01
Genre: Political Science

This book offers a cogent overview of the historical context and enduring patterns of U.S. relations with Asia. Noted scholar Robert G. Sutter provides a balanced analysis of post–Cold War dynamics in Asia, which involve interrelated questions of security, economics, national identity, and regional institution building. He demonstrates how these critical concerns manifest a complex mix of realist, liberal, and constructivist tendencies that define the regional order. Sutter weighs how the recent US emphasis on “re-engagement” with the broader Asia-Pacific fits within the context of regional dynamics. He assesses how the United States has responded to Asia’s growing strength and importance while at the same time trying to maintain its leading position as an Asian power despite China’s rising influence.

China s Asia

Author: Lowell Dittmer
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield
ISBN: 9781442237575
Release Date: 2018-02-23
Genre: Political Science

This balanced and deeply informed book provides a comprehensive account of China’s Asia policy since the Cold War. Lowell Dittmer traces the PRC’s policy toward its Asian neighbors in the context of the country’s move from a developing nation to a great power, capable of playing a role in world politics commensurate with its remarkable economic rise. The author considers China’s bilateral relations with Russia, Central Asia, South and Southeast Asia, and Australia. Each of these relationships is also viewed in terms of China’s rivalry with the United States, which has viewed China’s rise with admiration tinged with a certain foreboding. Thus, Dittmer employs a triangular analysis to understand Beijing’s attempt to expand in Asia while at the same time deterring Washington’s interference. Reframing the international relations of Asia in a thought-provoking and informed manner, this important book presents a panoramic view of the dynamics at work on all sides of China.

Civil military Relations

Author: David R Mares
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9780429981203
Release Date: 2018-02-12
Genre: Political Science

With the end of the Cold War the attention of policymakers, political activists, and academics has focused on the factors which promote democracy and regional peace. From both a theoretical and empirical perspective, the contributors to this volume examine the claim that civilian domination is the only form compatible with democracy and regional peace. By focusing on political values and the institutional rules of politics, the authors not only dispute this claim but clarify the conditions under which a partnership between civilians and the military can help promote both. The authors provide in-depth analyses of the normative and institutional aspects of the civil-military relationship to demonstrate that it is the politics of the relationship rather than its form that influences the likelihood of democracy and regional peace. Their analysis provides new reasons for expecting that democracy and regional peace can proliferate in the post?Cold War world.As a study of civil-military relations in twelve countries across Latin America, Asia, and Europe, Civil-Military Relations is an accessible and valuable book for policymakers, academics, and general readers.

Japan s Security Renaissance

Author: Andrew L Oros
Publisher: Columbia University Press
ISBN: 9780231542593
Release Date: 2017-03-07
Genre: History

For decades after World War II, Japan chose to focus on soft power and economic diplomacy alongside a close alliance with the United States, eschewing a potential leadership role in regional and global security. Since the end of the Cold War, and especially since the rise of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Japan’s military capabilities have resurged. In this analysis of Japan's changing military policy, Andrew L. Oros shows how a gradual awakening to new security challenges has culminated in the multifaceted “security renaissance” of the past decade. Despite openness to new approaches, however, three historical legacies—contested memories of the Pacific War and Imperial Japan, postwar anti-militarist convictions, and an unequal relationship with the United States—play an outsized role. In Japan’s Security Renaissance Oros argues that Japan’s future security policies will continue to be shaped by these legacies, which Japanese leaders have struggled to address. He argues that claims of rising nationalism in Japan are overstated, but there has been a discernable shift favoring the conservative Abe and his Liberal Democratic Party. Bringing together Japanese domestic politics with the broader geopolitical landscape of East Asia and the world, Japan’s Security Renaissance provides guidance on this century’s emerging international dynamics.
