     Asian Energy Security: The Maritime Dimension

Driven by rising oil demand and active initiatives, including recent Chinese naval escort of merchant vessels in the Gulf of Aden, Asia has become an important player in international energy security, as well as maritime security. �The timely volume examines China?s and Japan?s efforts for securing energy supplies overseas and maritime energy transport, their cooperation and rivalry as well as the implications for Asia up to recent years.� It also examines the growing shipping traffic in the Straits of Malacca and security of sea lanes in Asia.� Viewing energy and maritime security as global public goods, the volume surveys and proposes multilateral initiatives for provisioning these goods.

     Maritime Security in Southeast Asia (Routledge Security in Asia Series)
Publisher: Routledge
Author(s):

This book confronts both the maritime security challenges and responses. In Southeast Asia, maritime security has, over the last twenty years, taken on a much greater importance, due to the Law of the Sea convention, which has resulted in a 200 nautical mile Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZs).

As well as traditional security threats to maritime security, there has also emerged a range of non-traditional threat, such as those emanating from piracy and international terrorism that spill over into the maritime domain. Events such as September 11th, and the designation of Southeast Asia as a 'second front' in the war against terrorism, have resulted in the growing realization that multilateral security cooperation is required in order to better manage emerging security threats.

Expert contributors to this book identify the nature of the maritime security problem and critically evaluate the various responses with an eye to improving the management of prevailing and emerging security threats. This book will be an invaluable resource to academics, policy analysts, legislators and students interested in security issues in Southeast Asia.

     Cryptozoica
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Author(s): Mark Ellis

Lost World - Lost Souls Deep in the jungled hell of Big Tamtung, a forgotten island in the South China Seas, a miraculous ancient substance is found that will unlock the secrets of life on Earth-- Prima Materia, a fabled material that has been whispered about since Biblical times. Two centuries before, Charles Darwin discovered the last pool of Prima Materia on Big Tamtung but his discovery was suppressed by The School of Night, a secret society of scholars founded by Sir Walter Raleigh. Now, when a small group of scientists and fortune hunters explore the jungles of Big Tamtung, they must endure frightening tests of their ingenuity and courage, as they struggle against ancient terrors--a lost world of dinosaurs and a miracle older than time. With a non-human language spoken by Biblical patriarchs and coded secrets scribbled in the suppressed log of Darwin as their only clues, "Tombstone" Jack Kavanaugh and his partner, Augustus Crowe, discover secrets linking Prima Materia to the hidden history of humanity. Kavanaugh and Crowe lead a pair of cynical scientists and the notorious Madame Bai Suzhen through the seething cauldron of a bizarre ecosystem--the remnant of an Earth that was and might be again. Pursued by a crew of bloodthirsty Triad assassins and frighteningly intelligent monsters spawned by a twisted evolution, Kavanaugh and Crowe are no longer interested in seeking a fortune, but merely in staying alive. Deep in the broiling jungle, amid ruins half as old as time, they plunge into the heart of humanity's greatest mystery--and to a violent confrontation with a misshapen madman who lusts after a miracle but will settle for murder. Lavishly illustrated by Jeff Slemons. Cryptozoica?where the past has not stopped breathing! "CRYPTOZOICA is a novel for those who really want to sink their teeth into something engrossing to the finish. For a modern take on pulp adventure, you would be hard-pressed to find one that delivers like this. -Bruce Grossman, Bookgasm

     Sea Power and the Asia-Pacific: The Triumph of Neptune? (Cass Series: Naval Policy and History)
Publisher: Routledge
Author(s):

With particular focus on the Asia-Pacific region, this book examines the rise and fall of sea powers.

In the Asia-Pacific region there has been significant expansion of sea-based economies together with burgeoning naval power. Many claim that these processes will transform the world?s future economic and security relationships. The book addresses the question of to what extent the notion of ?Asia rising? is reflected by and dependent on its developing sea power. A central theme is the Chinese challenge to long-term Western maritime ascendency and what might be the consequences of this.

In order to situate current and future developments this book includes chapters which analyse what sea power means and has meant, as well as its role, both historic and contemporary, in the rise and fall of great powers.

This book will be of much interest to students of naval power, Asian politics, strategic studies, war and conflict studies, IR and security studies.

     Eastern Indian Ocean: Historical Links to Contemporary Convergences
Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing
Author(s): Lipi Ghosh

The Indian Ocean has attracted scholarly attention through ages. As we talk of inter Asian linkages and inter regional arena studies, the connections through Bay of Bengal (Eastern Indian Ocean) is a fascinating subject. This book is an attempt to understand how these issues of commercial and cultural linkages manifest along the Eastern Indian Ocean from past to the present. It aims to look at the various dimensions of contemporary Eastern Indian Ocean and it wants to see if past has any role to play to shape up the contemporary contexts. The discussions in the book will show how revival of an ancient linkage can stimulate contemporary international trade and can promote regional cooperation. The findings of the book will definitely lay foundations for future analyses of the emerging India-South East Asia relationship. It is expected to be a pioneering attempt for a comprehensive and multidisciplinary examination of the region under review.

     Decoding Boundaries in Contemporary Japan: The Koizumi Administration and Beyond (Sheffield Centre for Japanese Studies/Routledge Series)
Publisher: Routledge
Author(s):

This book sheds light on the changing nature of contemporary Japan by decoding a range of political, economic and social boundaries. With a focus on the period following the inauguration of Prime Minister Koizumi Junichir?, the book grows out of a recognition that, with the Koizumi administration playing a more proactive role internationally and moving ahead with deregulation and the ?structural reform? of the economy domestically, a range of boundaries have been challenged and reinscribed. Here ?boundaries? refers to the ways in which contemporary Japan is shaped as a separate entity by the inscription and reinscription of political, economic and social space creating insiders and outsiders, both internationally and domestically. The central argument of the book is that, in order to achieve the twin goals of greater international proactivity and domestic reform, the government and other actors supporting Koizumi?s new direction for Japan needed to take action in order to destabilize and reformulate a range of extant boundaries. While boundaries often remain invisible, the aim of this book is to promote an understanding of their significance by uncovering their pivotal role.

Decoding Boundaries in Contemporary Japan brings together contributions from leading and emerging scholars from the UK, Japan and the United States. It will appeal to scholars and students of Japan as well as social scientists with an interest in borders and boundaries, political scientists interested in Asia.

     International Governance and Regimes: A Chinese Perspective (Routledge Contemporary China Series)
Publisher: Routledge
Author(s): Peter Kien Hong Yu

This book examines China?s involvement in international governance, international regimes, and globalization. Peter Kien-hong Yu offers a new framework with which to understand ?international regimes? and applies it to important Chinese case studies such as arms control, disarmament, and non-proliferation; the counter-piracy regime and the environmental issue.

Whilst internationally important matters related to such systems are identified, Yu?s discussions attempt to find out whether any particular system works better in relation to China, and asks if not, why not? After examining eight different cases, the author concludes that these regimes are working but there is ample room for improvement and that the Chinese (Communists) for one have to enhance their understanding of international governance and try to export their experience to other parts of the world.

International Governance and Regimes will be appeal to anyone interested in International Politics, Chinese Studies, Political theory and International Relations.

     Security Strategies in the Asia-Pacific: The United States' "Second Front" in Southeast Asia
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
Author(s): Andrew T H Tan

After 9/11, the U.S.-led global war on terrorism has intruded into an already complex security environment in the Malay archipelago, home to the world?s largest population of Muslims, with the potential to catalyze or unleash further dynamics that could destabilize the region. This book argues that, given the existence of a discrete Malay archipelago security complex, with its security linkages and interactive dynamics, it is a fallacy for the United States to approach this region primarily through the prism of global counter-terrorism. Instead, any strategic policy towards the region needs to be founded upon a deep appreciation of the existing Malay archipelago security complex.�

     China Turns to Multilateralism: Foreign Policy and Regional Security (Routledge Contemporary China Series)
Publisher: Routledge
Author(s):

China?s recent rapid economic growth has drawn global attention to its foreign policy, which increasingly has had an impact on world politics. In contrast with China?s long-standing preference for bilateralism or unilateralism in foreign policy, recent decades have seen changes in the PRC?s attitude and in its declaratory and operational policies, with a trend toward the accepting and advocating of multilateralism in international affairs. Whilst China?s involvement has been primarily in the economic arena, for example, participation in the World Trade Organization and ASEAN Plus Three, it has more recently expanded into international security institutions, such as the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

This book records, analyzes, and attempts to conceptualize, this phenomenal development in Chinese foreign policy and its impact on international relations, with the emphasis on China?s active participation in multilaterally-oriented regional security regimes. Written by an impressive team of international scholars, this book is the first collective effort in the field of China studies and international relations to look at China?s recent turn to multilateralism in foreign affairs. It will appeal to students and scholars of Chinese politics and foreign policy, security studies and international relations.

     Out of Business and on Budget: The Challenge of Military Financing in Indonesia
Publisher: Brookings Institution Press
Author(s): Lex Rieffel, Jaleswari Pramodhawardani

The armed forces of Indonesia have been engaged in off-budget business activities since the country declared its independence in 1945. Now, the newly democratic government would like to end that dependence on off-budget income and fully support the military with funding from the governmental budget.

Getting the Indonesian military out of business and on budget is an immensely complex undertaking for a number of reasons. Its business interests are deeply rooted. Other Indonesian ministries and agencies engage in similar off-budget activities, and the military is only one of many priorities competing for resources. But this is an essential step in consolidating democracy and meeting the people's aspirations for good governance.

Lex Rieffel and Jaleswari Pramodhawardani have produced the first comprehensive and systematic study of this daunting challenge facing Indonesia. They describe the evolution of the military's business empire under President Suharto and its decline after Suharto's resignation in 1998. The authors challenge the conventional wisdom that most of the military's financing comes from its business activities, and they cut through the misinformed, muddled thinking that clouds the current debate on military funding requirements. The book identifies thirty policy issues that the government will need to address in building a professional military that has the force structure and operational capacity required to defend the country effectively.

     Cooperative Security in the Asia-Pacific: The ASEAN Regional Forum (Asian Security Studies)
Publisher: Routledge
Author(s):

This book offers the most comprehensive analysis yet of the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF), which remains the foremost dialogue forum for the promotion of cooperative security in the Asia-Pacific. Contributors focus on the perspectives and roles of the key players in the ARF -- ASEAN, the United States, China, Japan, and Australia -- and discuss to what extent these participants have shaped the Forum's institutional development and affected its achievements and prospects against the backdrop of the evolving regional security architecture. They also examine in depth how participants have used the Forum to respond to a range of important transnational security issues and challenges, including terrorism and maritime security, as well as disaster relief. This work also explores how, despite the difficulties in reaching a new consensus regarding the collective pursuit of preventive diplomacy, some activist participants have succeeded in bringing about a notable, albeit incipient, 'practical turn' in the ARF's security cooperation. This book will appeal to students of South-East Asian Politics, Asian Security Studies and International Relations in general.
