Reviews

“The book is the first systematic effort to explore comprehensively a highly consequential policy as well as to support and demonstrate empirically through historical examples … . It is an excellent read for those who seek to understand the international systemic origins of the policy and want to start thinking about its consequences and what needs to be done further in order for the two main Powers to forge cooperative relations away from friction.” (Eleni Ekmektsioglou, European Review of International Studies, Vol. 2 (3), 2015)

"The American 'rebalance' towards Asia is much talked about but frequently poorly understood. Happily, this excellent new book will serve as an antidote to this, providing a detailed, sophisticated and highly readable account both of the rebalance itself and its wider implications."

- Anand Menon
