Strategic Asia 2014–15: U.S. Alliances and Partnerships at the Center of Global Power
Ashley J. Tellis, Abraham M. Denmark, and Greg Chaffin, eds.
Strategic Asia 2014–15: U.S. Alliances and Partnerships at the Center of Global Power examines the trajectories of U.S. alliance and partner relationships in the Asia-Pacific in light of the region’s shifting strategic landscape. Leading experts provide comprehensive assessments of the current state of the United States’ relations with its five treaty allies, as well as with emerging "strategic partners" in Asia, and draw implications for U.S. policy.
The Strategic Asia Program:
- Offers an authoritative assessment of Asia’s evolving strategic environment
- Looks forward five years, and in some cases beyond, to contemplate the future of the region
- Maintains a record of data and analysis on trends in Asia’s changing strategic landscape
Guided by Research Director Ashley J. Tellis (Carnegie Endowment for International Peace), this major ongoing research initiative publishes an annual edited volume and executive brief.
The Strategic Asia Program also maintains an online database focused on indicators of the changing balance of power in the region, provides an interactive mapping tool that tracks current Asian military developments, and organizes tailored briefings for a broad range of U.S. government agencies, policymakers, and leaders of industry to inform U.S. foreign policy toward the Asia-Pacific.
