New developments in the Asia-Pacific call for a review of our current understanding of the security order in the region. These developments are forcing regional elites to rethink and alter, in varying degrees, the way they manage security issues. Against this backdrop of regional transition, contributors to this volume explore: why some forms of security cooperation and institutionalization in the Asia-Pacific have proven more feasible than others; bilateral security cooperation and emerging multilateral structures; and factors needed to develop complementary relationships between states. Patterns of change and continuity in regional security management and cooperation in the Asia-Pacific are identified and analyzed in this book. Part I provides an overview of evolving security approaches in the Asia-Pacific region from the Cold War through the post-Cold War to the current post-September 11 era. The chapters in Part II provide country-based perspectives on how the nine Asia-Pacific nations have evolved in their thinking and approach to security management from the Cold War to the present. The security strategies of countries examined include those of major powers in the region (United States, China, Australia, and Japan), middle/sub-regional powers (Indonesia, Philippines, and South Korea), and finally small states (Malaysia, Thailand, and Singapore).
