The Asia Pacific Security Outlook series provides assessments of the security environment, defense issues, and regional and global cooperation from the perspectives of countries that participate in the ASEAN Regional Forum. This ninth edition reports on the impact of such recent trends and events as the continuing slow-motion crisis over North Koreas nuclear program and other potential proliferation of weapons of mass destruction; further terrorist attacks combined with the forces of radical Islamism and regional rebellion that threaten numerous countries in the region; stresses in the relations of major regional powers, including Chinas relations with the United States (especially over Taiwan) and Japan; and new questions about the long-term future of a U.S. presence in the region. Adding the toll of natural disasters, disease, and persistent poverty, human security is under threat virtually throughout the region. Based on the work and expertise of a multinational team of security analysts and written for generalists and specialists alike, the Outlook is the most concise and authentic comparative work in this field.
