Security Perspectives of the Malay Archipelago: Security Linkages in the Second Front in the War on Terrorism
Andrew Tan illustrates that the recent emergence of transnational radical terrorism is a new dynamic that has added to, but not supplanted, the existing complex security linkages among the states of the Malay Archipelago. Security Perspectives of the Malay Archipelago discusses how states in this sub-regional security complex have formulated their security perspectives, how they have responded to perceived security challenges and to uncover the extent and nature of security linkages among the five states. The author argues that a more holistic and comprehensive approach is needed to gain both greater understanding and better-informed strategies in managing the myriad security challenges, including international terrorism, internal rebellions and inter-state tensions, that beset this increasingly strategically important region.
