Ashley J. Tellis, Andrew Marble and Travis Tanner, eds.

Through a combination of country, regional, and topical studies, leading experts examine the potential effects of the crisis on the economic performance and strategic goals of various Asian states and the resulting implications for the larger balance of power, both in the region and globally.
