This thoroughly revised and updated edition of Asian Security Handbook focuses on the new challenges to security in the Asia-Pacific region presented by international terrorism. It reviews old security realities covered in previous editions, and highlights more recent security issues in the region, including the North Korean threat, weapons of mass destruction proliferation, the South China Sea dispute, and the future U.S.-China rivalry. Featuring contributions by a distinguished group of international security and Asia experts, this new edition has been reformatted and restructured. A new introductory chapter on terrorism sets the stage for the country-by-country profiles and assessments of the political-security situations in twenty-three individual nations. A new appendix on foreign terrorist organizations is also included.

Review quote

"Carpenter and Wiencek's volume on Asian security issues has increasingly become an indispensable part of any set of general readings on the great breadth of security concerns and issues found in broad regional or narrow subnational context--as well as enduring areas of contention between nation states in Asia. The authors have retained their skill of identifying contributors whose knowledge of their respective area of competence runs deep, and whose experience in managing these issues, often in direct policy formation, complements their understanding. In this volume, brevity and even terseness brings the central issues to center stage, while the thrust is always contemporary, policy-focused, and balanced."
