Book Review: Strategic Asia 2007-08: Domestic Political Change and Grand Strategy edited by Ashley L. Tellis and Michael Wills The seventh edition of the Strategic Asia series continues the tradition of providing insightful, accessible and policy-relevant analysis for students of international relations. The focus on the internal drivers of strategic change is a welcome addition to the series, which in the past has focused on Asian military modernisation, economic development and the region’s response to America’s global war on terror. The contributions are from a collection of leading area specialists. In addition to five chapters on regional great powers, China, Japan, the Koreas, Russia and India, the book boasts three addition chapters on regional developments in South Asia, Southeast Asia and Central Asia. The book concludes with three chapters on topical issues of concern to the US, if not regional states as well; the Iranian nuclear issue, multilateral security efforts and environmental security issues.
