The Environmental Dimension of Asian Security: Conflict and Cooperation Over Energy, Resources, and Pollution

By
Paul G. Harris

The Environmental Dimension of Asian Security: Conflict and Cooperation Over Energy, Resources, and Pollution describes and analyzes connections among resources, the environment, and security in Northeast Asia. Despite its title, this book is not about all of Asia, but instead focuses on its eastern, and particularly its northeastern, states and regions. Given the number of people living in this part of the world, its prodigious pollution, its unprecedented economic growth—and the dominant “growth-first, clean-up-pollution-later model of development”—as well as the region’s growing appetite for natural resources, anyone interested in environmental security should be concerned about the issues addressed in this book.
