Scholars and policy makers have traditionally viewed portions of the Indian Ocean and the Western Pacific as separate and discrete political, economic, and military regions. In recent years, however, a variety of economic, political, and military forces have made many within the academic community, as well as a growing number of national governmental leaders, change their perceptions and recognize that these maritime expanses are one zone of global interaction. Consequently, political, military, and economic developments in one maritime region increasingly have an impact elsewhere.

Analyzing and assessing the contemporary maritime challenges in the Indian Ocean and the Western Pacific, this valuable study highlights the current prospects for peace and security in what is rapidly becoming recognized as an integrated and interactive political, military-strategic, and economic environment.

This work will be of interest to researchers and policy makers involved in regional studies, as well as security studies, conflict resolution, military, and peace studies.

"An excellent and long awaited assessment of the strategic relationship between the Indian Ocean and Western Pacific. This volume includes a number of well regarded regional and security specialists and is skillfully edited." Sheldon Simon, Professor, Politics and Global Studies, Arizona State University, USA

"The maritime lines of communication in the Indian Ocean and the Western Pacific have now assumed particular importance due to globalization, accompanied by the instability of the international political order. This volume of ten chapters by respected experts on the regions examines the history of and sheds new light on the contemporary importance of maritime navigation in these vital areas and should be read by specialists and interested laymen alike." Oles M. Smolansky, Professor Emeritus, Department of International Relations, Lehigh University, USA
