After examining the global system's political volatility at the dawn of the new millennium, the book looks at how some of the identifiable system-wide trends (for example, globalization, democratization and fragmentation) may find repercussions in the Asia Pacific. The book also addresses the question of "comprehensive security", in comparison with other regions, in a wide range of areas subsuming economic security (geoeconomics), environmental security (ecopolitics), and human security. In addition, the book recognizes the idiosyncrasies of the region, such as the defensiveness of most Asian governments toward the protection of their financial markets against external forces following the regional financial crisis of the late 1990s.
