    The Book

    This book is the outcome of the proceedings of the 7th Asian Security Conference organised by IDSA in January 2005. Eastern Asia was chosen keeping in view the remarkable transformation this region has been witnessing since the end of the Cold War. The special focus on Japan was to underscore the profound changes that Japan is effecting to its security and foreign policies and their likely impact on the rest of the region. Given its enormous complexity, while the region continues to be the most promising in terms of economic dynamism, its security remains a cause for concern. Intra-regional economic integration and cooperation is growing apace, but there are many issues that may imperil regional peace and stability. It is this dynamic that the Conference wanted to capture. The book is an important contribution to the ongoing debate on the East Asian security dynamic.
