International Relations of the Asia-Pacific

Four Volume Set
Edited by:


March 2010 | 1 608 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

The contemporary importance of the Asia-Pacific region in international relations has generated a very large and diverse academic literature. This four-volume set, International Relations of the Asia-Pacific, brings together for the first time a collection of essential articles covering the key themes and issues since the end of the Cold War. It examines the ways in which the region understands its place in the world and how the rest of the world understands the 'Asia Pacific', before turning to matters of security, international political economy and regional governance.

Volume I: Theorizing International Relations: Asia Views the World and the World Views Asia

Volume II: International Relations in Practice: Securities Old and New

Volume III: The International Political Economy of Development in East Asia
