Maritime Security in the Indian Ocean and Western Pacific : Heritage and Contemporary Challenges, Hardback Book

Maritime Security in the Indian Ocean and Western Pacific : Heritage and Contemporary Challenges Hardback

Edited by Professor Howard M. Hensel, Amit Gupta


Scholars and policy makers have traditionally viewed portions of the Indian Ocean and the Western Pacific as separate and discrete political, economic, and military regions.

In recent years, however, a variety of economic, political, and military forces have made many within the academic community, as well as a growing number of national governmental leaders, change their perceptions and recognize that these maritime expanses are one zone of global interaction.

Consequently, political, military, and economic developments in one maritime region increasingly have an impact elsewhere.

Analyzing and assessing the contemporary maritime challenges in the Indian Ocean and the Western Pacific, this valuable study highlights the current prospects for peace and security in what is rapidly becoming recognized as an integrated and interactive political, military-strategic, and economic environment. This work will be of interest to researchers and policy makers involved in regional studies, as well as security studies, conflict resolution, military, and peace studies.
