Item description for The Environmental Dimension of Asian Security: Conflict And Cooperation over Energy, Resources, And Pollution by In-Taek Hyun, Miranda A. Schreurs, Alexandru Balas, Carmelo Lettere, Brett Steele, Richard Teltschik & Jon Buller...
Northeast Asia is a region with highly disparate levels of industrialization and political systems. It also contains some very troubling security flashpoints the Taiwan Strait, the Korean Peninsula, and the East China Sea. China's rapacious quest for energy and rapid industrial expansion have led to intense international competition with Japan and the United States and internal instability as well. North Korea poses two distinct environmental security threats: famine refugees and the regime s use of nuclear blackmail for subsidized energy. Yet there is very little regional cooperation, despite the need to manage disputes over energy, natural resources, and pervasive pollution. The Environmental Dimension of Asian Security examines these issues through a regional environmental security complex that explores the potential for greater intersubjective understandings of regional environmental and natural resource problems and greater institutional collaboration and management.

Proposing a model for other Islamic countries to follow Jul 11, 2008
When people speak of world influencing countries, Nigeria is almost never mentioned. "Faith and Politics in Nigeria: Nigeria as a Pivotal State in the Muslim World" examines Nigeria, a major oil producer and the most populous country in Africa, and already a definite major influence in its region. Yet this African country's influence could be much more; its population is split between Muslims and Christians, and they live with little conflict. Proposing a model for other Islamic countries to follow, "Faith and Politics in Nigeria: Nigeria as a Pivotal State in the Muslim World" is highly recommended for personal, academic, and community Islamic Studies and International Studies reference collections and supplemental reading lists.
