The Unraveling of Island Asia? Governmental, Communal, and Regional Instability

Synopsis

This edited collection takes a primary focus on security issues in Oceania, but here the word "security" is expanded to include such topics as domestic Indonesian and Philippine instability, environmental degradation, the work of international crime syndicates, the generic problem of post-colonial state failure, and the always overhanging concern with China--in short all of the significant troubles roiling Island Asia today.
