Rethinking Asia and International Relations: Rethinking Asia and International Relations


About the Series

This series provides thoughtful consideration both of the growing prominence of Asian actors on the global stage and the changes in the study and practice of world affairs that they provoke. It offers a comprehensive parallel assessment of the full spectrum of Asian states, organisations, and regions and their impact on the dynamics of global politics. The series encourages conversation on: ¢ What rules, norms, and strategic cultures are likely to dominate international life in the 'Asian Century'; ¢ How will global problems be reframed and addressed by a 'rising Asia'; ¢ Which institutions, actors, and states are likely to provide leadership during such 'shifts to the East'; ¢ Whether there is something distinctly 'Asian' about the emerging patterns of global politics. Such comprehensive engagement not only offers a critical assessment of the actual and prospective roles of Asian actors, but rethinks the concepts, practices, and frameworks of analysis of world politics.
