"Challenges us to look beyond the available scholarship on Asia-Pacific regional security. Its claims about what constitute core security issues in the region, what is missing from existing analyses, and how to move forward are sure to provoke healthy disagreement and debate among Asian security experts about the 'state of their art'."--Amitav Acharya, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
