Islam, oil, and geopolitics : Central Asia after September 11 by Elizabeth Van Wie Davis( )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once an obscure and little-known region, Central Asia has become an important test of America's ability to consistently promote global liberal change, of Russia's true foreign policy agenda, and of China's readiness to translate economic power into political influence. Terrorism, economics, and politics all converge in this strategic region, with important implications for Asia and the world. A set of international contributors focuses on three important issues that are usually and unfortunately analyzed separately: Islamic political issues, energy security, and geopolitical maneuvering. This significant and timely volume helps readers understand current events in Central Asia and how those events affect the rest of the world

From APEC 2011 to APEC 2012 : American and Russian perspectives on Asia-Pacific security and cooperation( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines three broad and intertwined themes of significant importance for the Asia-Pacific region. Firstly, the volume discusses the complex mosaic of current and emerging regional security issues and relates them to the activities of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum and other regional organizations. The 2011 summit in Honolulu demonstrated the continuing relevance of the APEC but also revealed the organization's potential in further enhancing regional development and integration. The discussion in the volume of various regional security trends indicates several new opportunities for APEC's evolution as the organization prepares for its 2012 summit in Vladivostok. Secondly, the book contributors offer their personal perspectives on the evolving roles of influential regional actors, such as China, Japan, Russia, and the United States. Each of these important players has its own unique national perspective on the Asia- Pacific region shaped by respective historical, cultural, economic and political involvement in regional affairs. All of them, however, rely on effective multilateral institutions such as APEC. This leads to the third theme of the volume: U.S.-Russia relations in the Asia-Pacific. America's economic prosperity is unthinkable today without close partnership with the Asia-Pacific region. Russia, too, and especially its eastern regions, increasingly depends on the economic opportunities offered by the dynamic Asia-Pacific region. This commonality of America's and Russia's regional perspectives is a good basis for bilateral cooperation on regional issues. The transition from the Honolulu APEC to Vladivostok APEC offers an opportunity to explore new areas of U.S.-Russia bilateral ties across the Pacific

Central Asia and the United States 2004-2005 : moving beyond counter-terrorism? by Rouben Azizian( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The independence in 1991 of Central Asian states here defined as the former Soviet republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan raised serious hope in the West that after decades of authoritarianism the countries of the region would lean toward a process of democratization. This expectation was based on several assumptions. Firstly, the impressive liberal beginning of Boris Yeltsin Russia suggested that other former Soviet republics might follow its example. Secondly, the appeal of religion and religious extremism were underestimated in view of the highly secular history of post-Soviet Central Asia. Thirdly, immediately after the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre China seemed to be unattractive to Central Asia leaders as an alternative political model or strategic partner. However, these factors were seriously challenged by subsequent events. Russia soon revealed that it lacked the internal consensus and tradition of pluralism that would allow it to emulate the Western model of liberal democracy, and it started to examine more closely the Chinese and other Asian approaches to reform. So did the Central Asian states under their increasingly authoritarian and corrupt governments. A rising China, meanwhile, emerged as an attractive economic powerhouse for the Central Asian states and further enhanced their ability to balance the great powers and their political ideologies. Alarmed by the rose and orange revolutions in Georgia and Ukraine, which are perceived in Russia as Western conspiracies to undermine Russia s preeminence in the post-Soviet space, Moscow is offering more political and military assistance to increasingly troubled Central Asian leaders in order to protect them from similar radical internal developments

Asia's China debate( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

China has been a prominent feature of the Asia-Pacific region's security landscape in a variety of forms. Now, however, its rapid economic growth--especially trade--diplomatic activism, and military modernization are developments that have significant implications for the entire region, including the United States. The Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies teaching and research faculty, in an effort to better understand how countries in the region are thinking about and dealing with China, and to share the results of its findings with the wider government and analytic community, has produced this Special Assessment entitled Asia's China Debate. This is the second issue of our Special Assessment series. As might be expected from a range of analyses that address ten country perspectives concerning China and issues such as China's historical relations with the region, its multilateral participation, economic growth and regional integration and its emerging regional road and rail links, Asia's China debate differs in texture and intensity across these topics and countries. Still, some common themes about Asia's China debate do emerge from these analyses. One is that China is a relative newcomer to regional prominence and countries in the region are still working out what China's growing weight means to their economies, societies and security. A corollary is that the United States continues to be regarded as the single most important country to the region's peace and prosperity. These two conclusions are connected. Asia's future China debate will certainly hinge to a great deal on developments in and decisions by China, but the role and relations of the United States in the region will also shape it
