Asia in International Relations : Unlearning Imperial Power Relations Paperback
Edited by Pinar Bilgin, L. H. M. Ling
Part of the Rethinking Asia and International Relations series
Asia in International Relations decolonizes conventional understandings and representations of Asia in International Relations (IR).
This book opens by including all those geographical and cultural linkages that constitute Asia today but are generally ignored by mainstream IR.
Covering the Indian subcontinent, Turkey, the Mediterranean, Iran, the Arab world, Ethiopia, and Central-Northeast-Southeast Asia, the volume draws on rich literatures to develop our understanding of power relations in the world's largest continent.
Contributors "de-colonize", "de-imperialize", and "de-Cold War" the region to articulate an alternative narrative about Asia, world politics, and IR.
This approach reframes old problems in new ways with the possibility of transforming them, rather than recycling the same old approaches with the same old "intractable" outcomes.
