While International Relations of Asia is the product of a prestigious group of specialists, it is neither overly academic nor excessively caught up in specific policy issues. Rather, it is informative, nuanced, and insightful. As such it is sure to become, alongside Robert Sutter's recently published Chinese Foreign Relations, a foundational textbook in undergraduate international relations courses which have an Asian component to them. More broadly, it is ideally suited as a primer for anyone with a budding interest in the complex security and foreign policy dynamic taking shape in the region. Journal of Chinese Political Science A broad-gauge, up-to-date survey of the shifting global landscape, this volume, while invaluable as a textbook, is more than just a teaching tool for the classroom, although it is certainly that. It is also a boon to a much broader readership-indeed, for any citizen who wants to understand how different the new century is from the old one, especially with the rise of Asia. The editors have brought together, in admirably cohesive fashion, some of the foremost scholars on the region and on international affairs, bridging the usual divide between economic and politics. -- Strobe Talbott, president, The Brookings Institution Shambaugh and Yahuda have drawn together a stellar cast of some of the brightest and most thoughtful analysts and practitioners from Asia, Europe, and North America. The result is a compendium which is intellectually stimulating, organizationally well-structured, and analytically sensible, helping us grasp the remarkable dynamism of international relations across Asia today. Students of contemporary Asian affairs-new to the field and old hands alike-will find this a valuable read. -- Bates Gill, director, Stockholm International Peace Research Institute Want to know where the Asia region is headed? This comprehensive and well-written volume provides a clear picture of its political, economic, and social dynamics by the top scholars in the field. It is bound to become the most widely used textbook for Asian international relations courses. -- Susan Shirk, University of California, San Diego; former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for East Asia and Pacific Affairs These essays by leading scholars combine interpretive richness and factual depth. Taken together, they provide a one-stop education on the dynamics of the globe's most dynamic region. -- Richard C. Bush, director, Center for East Asia Policy Studies, The Brookings InstitutionVom Verlag:
