East Asia's Security Cooperation: Walk the Walk and Talk the Talk will enhance readers' understanding of the security cooperation in East Asia and its sub-regions of Northeast Asia and Southeast Asia, with a focus on how this impacts the intra-regional and extra-regional security. Security cooperation has been lagging behind cooperation in general, at present, to such a large extent that it threatens economic and political cooperation. Based on a large array of interviews and information from a vast network of military and security staff all over Asia, this book takes a close look at the policies involved in security cooperation. It highlights the deficits of regional structures and offers practical advice on improving cooperation, evaluating the impact of such efforts over time. Readers seeking deeper insights into how regional security cooperation could be structured and implemented will find this volume invaluable.
