Summary and Info
Featuring contributions by a distinguished group of international security and Asia experts, this thoroughly revised and updated edition of Asian Security Handbook focuses on the new challenges to security in the Asia-Pacific region presented by international terrorism. It reviews ''old'' security realities covered in previous editions, and highlights more recent security issues in the region, including the North Korean threat, weapons of mass destruction proliferation, the South China Sea dispute, and the future U.S.-China rivalry. The new edition has been completely reformatted and restructured. A new introductory chapter on terrorism sets the stage for the country-by-country profiles and assessments of the political-security situation in twenty-three individual nations. A new appendix on Foreign Terrorist Organizations is also included.
