Asia is a region where both superpowers have intervened on land and stationed increasing naval forces. The continent has also witnessed numerous inter-state wars. In this book, scholars from the region describe and try to understand these tensions, and also pose alternative options for peace. They examine the militarisation of south-east Asia, the Pacific Islands and Japan; regional security issues; and specific conflicts such as the Iran-Iraq war.
