About this book

Conscious that trust deficit is a principal concern in East Asia, the book attempts to suggest ways to enhance confidence in certain key areas such as disputes in East and South China Seas, maritime CBMs, impact of economic interdependence on security, and issues concerning identity and values in Asian thinking.

Reviews

"This exciting new book deals with a topic of great and growing importance, both in Asia and beyond. It is also an extraordinarily contentious one. The authors offer a broad spectrum of opinions from around the region, and many are leading experts in the subject. As a reflection of the state of debate in the East Asian region, this is a very useful volume.' - Thomas U. Berger, Frederick S. Pardee School of International Studies, Boston University, USA

"This volume's focus on Asian history and perceptions is particularly important, in contrast to many analyses that look solely at the global security dynamics of the region. Under the co-editorship of Kazuhiko Togo, Japan's premier scholar-diplomat, readers will understand the Japanese angle of Asian thinking on East Asian security issues." -Robert Dujarric, Director, Institute of Contemporary Asian Studies (ICAS), Temple University, Japan Campus
