Summary
Today we recognize Asia as a vibrant and assertive region, fully transformed from vulnerable nation-states that emerged following the Second World War. The transformation was the product of two key themes that have dominated Asia's international relations since 1945: the competition between the United States and the Soviet Union to enlist the region's states as assets in the Cold War, and the struggle of nationalistic Asian leaders to develop the domestic support to maintain power and independence in a dangerous international context. Becoming Asia provides a comprehensive, systemic account of how these themes played in Asian affairs during the postwar years, covering not only East Asia, but South and Central Asia as well. Besides exploring interplay between nationalism and Cold War bipolarity during the first postwar decades, authors Alice Lyman Miller and Richard Wich chart the rise of largely export-led economies that are increasingly making the region the global center of gravity, and document efforts in the ongoing search for regional integration. The book traces the origins and evolution of deep-rooted issues that remain high on the international agenda, such as Taiwan question, division of Korea and threat of nuclear proliferation, the Kashmir issue, and nuclearized Indian-Pakistani conflict, and offers an account of the rise of China and its implications for regional and global security and prosperity. Primary documents excerpted throughout the text such as leaders' talks and speeches, international agreements, secret policy assessments enrich accounts of events, offering readers insight
