From the Back Cover

With the world's fastest-growing markets, fastest-rising military expenditures, and most volatile hot spots, a resurgent Asia holds the key to the future global order.

By George Blank on April 20, 2010
Format: Hardcover
A very thorough, well researched and extensively documented book with penetrating analysis of the competition between China, Japan, and India for natural resources and leadership in Asia.

I was most impressed by the extensive documentation of Chinese military activities to contain India, including aggression from Tibet, military activities in Pakistan and Burma, projection of sea power into the Indian Ocean, and cartographic aggression on Chinese maps of Kashmir and Arunachal Pradesh.

Agrarian unrest in China is another uncertainty that has been growing, and there is no way to know if the Communist Party can contain it over the long term.

An interesting section on the the Chinese use of fanciful history, where they use legends or interpret or reinvent history to justify otherwise weak claims to Tibet, Taiwan, the Spratly Islands, Kashmir and Arunachal Pradesh.

Where China has the most conflict with India and Japan is over oil. All of them are very dependent on the Middle East, particularly Iran. That is why China has been using its membership on the UN Security Council to protect Iran from nuclear sanctions.

Extensive source lists for every chapter, and an appendix with the full text of significant diplomatic documents.

Brahma Chellaney in Asian Juggernaut paints a complex picture. On one hand, Asia has the world's fastest growing markets, rising military expenditures and most volatile hot spots.

This leads Chellany to champion that Asia holds the key to the future global order. Asia's three big powers (China, India, and Japan) have formed a strategic triangle that is likely to have a massive impact on global affairs for decades to come.

I say the picture is complex because this isn't another Asian Godzilla attacks the rest of the world book, but rather a far more cautious and guarded assessment. Yes, China, India, and Japan are powerful nations--both in terms of economic output and global clout.

However, the Asian rise is far from a dichotomous affair as global competition for resources and various territorial disputes threaten to make Asia a place of great conflict. Asia is only a juggernaut if the tiger can stay out of its' own way.
