Book Description

February 12, 2008 0754672433 978-0754672432
Amit Gupta seeks to address two interrelated questions in this volume: what do the major states of Asia view as the emerging challenges in their immediate security environment as well as in the broader Asian region; and what future security outcomes would make them believe that strategic stability had been achieved in the Asian continent.Central to the latter question is China and the path it will take to rise to superpower status. While all the major Asian states increasingly are both economically and politically engaged with China, doubts remain about China's long-term intentions. This volume discusses what military, diplomatic, and economic measures are being taken by the major Asian countries and Australia to establish a new framework for strategic stability. In doing so the authors look at what global pressures are impacting on these countries' security dilemmas and furthermore, from the perspective of these countries, what patterns of expected behavior would China have to fulfill for a regional security order to emerge in Asia.

More About the Author

My writings have been in three areas: International Security, Sports and Politics, and the Impact of Popular Culture on Politics. The International Security literature was initially on arms transfers and arms exports. More recently it has been on the possibility of a Tripolar world and its future security implications.

The Sports pieces have been mainly on cricket and the rise of Nonwestern nations.

In popular culture, as an ardent Whovian, the writings have been on how Doctor Who has handled contemporary societal themes.
