This book identifies the most significant current global security trends and relates these to the Asia-Pacific region. The rise of al-Qaeda's terrorist operations in the Asia-Pacific and the blurring of the division between contemporary and conventional war in Iraq provide important lessons for contemporary war and security. The ongoing tension across the Taiwan strait and North Korea's withdrawal from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty are also important developments for Asian states to consider as they manage their defence and security in the 21st century.
