The State of Asia (1951) examines the developments in Asia in the key post-war period of five years following 1945. Prewar and wartime background are provided for each country surveyed, as the international significance of the developments in the region, from Korea to Pakistan, are analysed. The chief emphasis is on political and economic developments, foreign relations and the impact of Asian issues on the world, but information on population, resources and geography are also included. The book is a series of independent analyses by leading specialists in particular fields – it is in no sense an effort at a consensus, but seeks to make clear the main trends in the region.
