In this groundbreaking book, Kent Calder argues that a new transnational configuration is developing in Asia, driven by economic growth, rising energy demand, and the collapse of longstanding geopolitical boundaries. What Calder calls the New Silk Road - a strengthening multifaceted relationship between the Far East and the Middle East - could eventually eclipse the Atlantic Alliance as the most important multilateral relationship in the world. Straddling the border between comparative politics and international relations theory, this important book will bring a much-needed dialogue to both sides.
Kent E. Calder is Edwin O. Reischauer Professor and Director of the Edwin O. Reischauer Center for East Asian Studies at the School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University.
