Strategic Asia 2006–07: Trade, Interdependence, and Security

Ashley J. Tellis and Michael Wills, eds.

Strategic Asia 2006–07: Trade, Interdependence, and Security, the sixth volume in NBR’s Strategic Asia series, examines how trade and interdependence fit into the grand strategies of various Asian states and how changing economic relationships could affect regional stability in Asia. Through a combination of country, regional, and topical studies, the book assesses trade and investment dynamics in the region, the rise of new powers, the ongoing processes of globalization, and the impact of economic interdependence on security, and evaluates how these trends are altering Asia's strategic environment.
