What People are Saying

“Based on insightful arguments in national, regional and international dimensions, this edited volume reveals the challenges and opportunities of nontraditional security governance in Asia, and offers appropriate solutions for the stakeholders. This volume is thus valuable reading for scholars, students, policy makers and activists who are concerned about non-traditional security issues in Asia and China-US cooperation in security governance.”—Kai Chen, China Quarterly

“A superior work in that it does a superb job in addressing the four major challenges of water security, food security, pandemic diseases, and crime/terrorism.”—John J. Brandon, The Asia Foundation
