Item description for Asia Rising: Who Is Leading? by Amitav Acharya...
China, India and Japan are among the biggest players in the global economy today. However, Asia's future depends not just on its impressive growth rates or its immense natural resources and human talent: rather, it also hinges on the quality of leadership provided by the major nations and associations of Asia, and their ability to overcome persisting rivalries and respond to new transnational challenges. Conflict and cooperation are the two central themes of this book - a collection of commentaries and opinion pieces by Professor Amitav Acharya from various newspapers and publications from 2002 to 2006. It covers a wide range of issues such as the rise of China, Asia's leadership legacy and the role of ASEAN. Also discussed are the late of democracy in Asia, and the implications of transnational dangers and the changing world order for Asia.
