Building a Neighborly Community: Post-Cold War China, Japan, and Southeast Asia

Front Cover
Manchester University Press, 2006 - History - 259 pages
Building a Neighborly Community explores the political economy of post-cold war East Asian co-operation by examining the history of intra-regional co-operation, against the background of China's rise and Japan's relative decline, both real and perceived. The book in particular examines how East Asian states have dealt with the South China Sea as a region-wide security challenge and the imperative for self-help after the 1997 economic crisis.
