Bob Sutter has struck again, providing experts and students alike with a valuable, wide-ranging analysis of U.S. relations with Asia stretching from South Asia to the North Pacific. He explicitly favors a 'contextual analysis used by U.S. government and other policy and intelligence analysts' to assess the complicated determinants shaping U.S.-Asia relations. It is difficult to suggest a more useful, current, and thoughtful single-volume, single-author text for specialists and students. -- Satu Limaye, Director, East-West CenterVom Verlag:
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 U.S. 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.
