In this book a multinational and inter-disciplinary group of contributors have written original essays seeking to provide the first profile of the strategic cultures of the states of the Asia-Pacific region. Strategic culture consists of the traditional cultural, historical, political and societal factors that help shape the defence policies and strategic behaviour of countries. As such, it is a necessary element in understanding the security issues of this changing and increasingly significant region in world politics. In addition to contributing to a better understanding of the security problems and prospects of the Asia-Pacific, the book gives additional empirical flesh to the developing concept of strategic culture and also relates it to the prospects for conflict management in the region, as well as military strategy.
