The International Politics of the Asia Pacific

This fully revised third edition of Michael Yahuda's extremely successful textbook brings the region fully up-to-date, introducing students to the international politics of the Asia-Pacific region since 1945, assessing the post-cold War uncertainties that challenged balance and power within the region; the 'war on terror'; new political administrations in all the key player-states; and increased cooperative security between some nations, polarised by volatile relationships between others.

Analyzing politics in terms of global, regional and local trends, this new edition features:

  • In-depth discussion of the Bush administration legacy and where the Obama administration's vision takes their policy
  • Analysis of post-Koizumi/post-Abe Japan
  • Examination of the continued Rise of China in terms of politics, security and economic dominance
  • Ongoing debates concerning the 'war on terror' and how this shifts, forms and reforms relationships
  • Asia-Pacific security issues

This new third edition will continue to be a core text for students of Asian politics, international relations and Cold war history.
