Japan's Strategic Challenges In A Changing Regional Environment, Hardback Book

Japan's Strategic Challenges In A Changing Regional Environment Hardback

Edited by Purnendra (University of Adelaide) Jain, Peng Er Lam


Japan faces significant challenges in both traditional and non-traditional areas of national security policy as the economic resurgence of China and the loss of US hegemonic clout significantly transform the strategic landscape of the Asia-Pacific region.

How is Japan coping with this new global and regional politico-security environment?

What strategic moves has it taken to best position itself for the future to maximize its global and regional influence?

More importantly, how is Japan perceived within the region by traditionally close regional partners such as the US and Australia, by supporters in Southeast Asia, and by new competitors - most prominently China and India?

What international role do these nations wish Japan to play?

In this comprehensive volume, these crucial questions are explored in-depth by a group of scholars both distinguished and diverse.
