Asia's new multilateralism : cooperation, competition, and the search for community by Michael J Green( )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,017 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditionally, stability in Asia has relied on America's bilateral alliances with Japan, Australia, and the Republic of Korea. Yet in recent years, emergent and more active multilateral forums, such as the Six-Party Talks on North Korea and the East Asia Summit, have taken precedence, engendering both cooperation and competition while reflecting the local concerns of the region. Some are concerned that this process is moving toward less-inclusive, bloc-based "talking shops" and that the future direction and success of these arrangements, along with their implications for global and regional security and prosperity, remain unclear. The fifteen contributors to this volume, all leading scholars in the field, provide national perspectives on regional institutional architecture and their functional challenges. They illuminate areas of cooperation that will move the region toward substantive collaboration, convergence of norms, and strengthened domestic institutions. They also highlight the degree to which institution building in Asia, a region composed of liberal democracies, authoritarian regimes, and anachronistic dictatorships, has become an arena for competition among major powers and conflicting norms, and assess the future shape of Asian security architecture
Weathering the storm : Taiwan, its neighbors, and the Asian financial crisis( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume, the result of an April 1999 conference organized by the Chung-Hua Institution for Economic Research and the Brookings Institution, examines the sources and lessons of the Asian financial crisis. Experts from both sides of the Pacific have drawn valuable policy lessons from the failures and successes of four key economies in the region: Indonesia, South Korea, Thailand, and Taiwan." "This work provides much-needed new understanding and reasoned policy lessons to help the Asia-pacific region meet its vast economic potential. It will be useful for academics and economic policymakers in governments, international organizations, universities, and research institutions, both in the region and beyond, as they assess and implement strategies for more stable regional and global economic development."--Jacket
CHINA MATTERS : getting it right for australia by Bates Gill( )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What does China's rise mean for Australia's future? China's meteoric growth over the last thirty years has seen the country transformed into a prosperous and powerful nation. As Australia's largest trading partner and signatory to a recent Free Trade Agreement, China's future is undeniably linked with our own. So how will China's domestic issues affect its relationship with Australia? Will China's demand for Australian goods and services continue to grow? Can the Communist Party continue its balancing act of expanding its middle class while cracking down on free speech and intensifying censorship? Will it make the leap to a green and high-tech economy? How will it use its growing power, regionally and globally? China Matters is a concise, up-to-date overview of what is happening in China right now, and the implications for Australia. Written by Australia-based, internationally renowned China-watchers Linda Jakobson and Bates Gill, this nuanced account examines the country's unique tensions and contradictions, and considers what Australia can do to best shape our relationship with the emerging superpower. China Matters is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand the consequences of strengthening ties with and doing business in a changing and increasingly powerful China

China's North Korea policy : assessing interests and influences by Bates Gill( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Events of the past year underscore the uncertainty and volatility of relations between North Korea and its neighbors in Northeast Asia, heightening security concerns for South Korea, Japan, and the United States in particular. As North Korea's most important economic and political partner, China will continue to play a central role in influencing North Korean choices both at home and in its foreign policy. The United States and China have a strong common interest in stability and peaceful outcomes on the Korean peninsula. Hence it is vital that the United States and its allies in the region have a clearer understanding of the current influences and interests shaping Chinese North Korean policy
China's arms acquisitions from abroad : a quest for 'superb and secret weapons' by Bates Gill( Book )

12 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The People's Republic of China seeks to attain military strength commensurate with its growing regional and international influence and to close the military-technological gap which has long separated it from the other major powers. To achieve its military modernization goals, China will continue its efforts to import the critical weapons and technologies it requires. Yet, for reasons rooted in both historical and contemporary contexts, China faces many difficulties and setbacks in this quest. China's Arms Acquisitions from Abroad documents and analyses the 150-year effort by China to strengthen its military forces through arms imports. Based on an historical understanding of this process, the report focuses mainly on contemporary transfers of weapons and technologies to China, particularly those from the Soviet Union and Russia, but also including imports from Israel, France, the United Kingdom, the United States and other suppliers. Relying on primary sources as well as on the most comprehensive collection of open-source data and information available on the subject, the report provides extensive documentation and a balanced assessment of past, current and likely future developments regarding Chinese arms imports. This unique study will prove useful to experts and officials concerned with security and regional affairs in East Asia

Chinese arms exports : policy, players, and process by Evan S Medeiros( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Global arms proliferation continues to be a key concern for the United States, particularly the export role of the People's Republic of China (PRC). Although China experienced a significant decline in its arms exports in the 1990s (down from the boom times of the 1980s), the PRC provides a significant array of lethal weapons and sensitive defense technologies to states around the world. These exports provide an invaluable means by which to assess the progress and performance of China's military-industrial complex. Moreover, these products may present the very systems and technological know-how that the United States and allied forces will encounter in a future conflict

China's new journey to the West : China's emergence in Central Asia and implications for U.S. interests : a report of the CSIS Freeman Chair in China Studies by Bates Gill( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most intriguing developments in Central Asia over the past decade has been China's renewed attention to diplomacy in the region. China's interest in building relations with Central Asia is not startling given its history, but the agility and creativity it has recently exercised in doing so has taken many by surprise. China has moved rapidly from the difficult task of delineating and disarming its borders with Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan to building a multilateral organization and growing economic and security ties, all the while working to alleviate traditional suspicions among Central Asian states about the Chinese government's true intentions. This report argues that China's prominence in Central Asia will grow over the next decade, particularly if Russia's position continues to wane and the strategic attention of the United States is drawn elsewhere in the years ahead

China and the revolution in military affairs by Bates Gill( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In April 1996, the Army War College's Strategic Studies Institute held its Seventh Annual Strategy Conference. This year's theme was, "China Into the 21st Century: Strategic Partner and ... or Peer Competitor." Dr. Bates Gill of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), on a panel entitled, "Seizing the RMA: China's Prospects," argued that there is more to participating in the RMA than securing or producing high-tech weaponry. A revolution is an all-encompassing phenomenon with socio-cultural as well as purely technological aspects. China's prospects for seizing the RMA lie not so much in the development of technology as in the restructuring of concepts and organizations. History, culture, and philosophical values will make it difficult for China to participate in the RMA. On the other hand, Dr. Gill believes that China may be able to develop an "RMA with Chinese characteristics" much as it took Marxism-Leninism, a Germanic-Russian innovation devised for proletarian revolution, and modified its tenets to be relevant within a peasant revolutionary context. Through sheer determination and by optimizing technology and expertise available from outside sources, China might approximate a less sophisticated RMA entirely suited to its own needs. Army Lieutenant Colonel Lonnie Henley argues that, over the next 20 years, China will deploy a dozen or so divisions possessing relatively advanced systems, but that overall, the PLA will remain about a generation behind the U.S. Army in terms of its ability to participate in a fully-developed RMA. Furthermore, capabilities within the air and sea forces of the PLA will be even more limited with relatively small infusions of advanced aircraft like the SU-27 and naval vessels such as the KILO class submarines. These modern weapons will make up only a fraction of what will be otherwise dated forces

The challenge of Chinese arms proliferation : U.S. policy for the 1990s by Bates Gill( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author conducts an extensive analysis of Chinese arms sales and their significance for the United States. Weaponry is sophisticated and includes assistance and technology which aid clients in developing their own weapons. China's highest leadership approves and is motivated primarily by strategic and political--not economic--considerations. The author concludes that Chinese arms sales pose a serious threat to U.S. mid-term security interests, and will persist and be resistant to U.S. and multilateral pressures. Finally, he recommends that the United States strictly limit transfers of dual-use technology to China; that it target specific kinds of Chinese arms transfers to certain countries, rather than seek blanket prohibitions; that it seek frequent, frank dialogue with Chinese officials; and that it encourage the development of antiballistic missile systems by potential targets of Chinese missiles. He also urges the United States to strengthen the effectiveness and enforcement powers of the Missile Technology Control Regime and similar international regimes ...
