The Daniel K. Inouye Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies’ Dr. Jeffrey Reeves recently contributed a chapter on Northeast Asia to The Routledge Handbook of Asian Security Studies entitled “Origins, Intentions, and Security Implications of Xi Jinping’s Belt and Road Initiative.”

The Routledge Handbook of Asian Security Studies provides a detailed exploration of security dynamics in the three distinct subregions that comprise Asia, and also bridges the study of these regions by exploring the geopolitical links between each of them.

This fully revised and updated second edition addresses the significant developments which have taken place in Asia since the first edition appeared in 2009. It examines these developments at both regional and national levels, including the conflict surrounding the South China Sea, the long-standing Sino-Indian border dispute, and Pakistan’s investment in tactical nuclear weapons, amongst many others.
