Shaping Up: Order, Change and Discontent in Asia's Security Future
Asia's strategic environment is in the midst of a major transformation, with a shifting distribution of power at the epicentre of this process. However, as long-standing security arrangements give way, there is great uncertainty about the kinds of dynamics that will come to define Asia's new security order in the coming years and decades. Can the US prolong its primacy? Will Asia's security environment resemble a traditionally rivalrous balance of power, or will it be more cooperative? Finally,
