Security and Peace in East Asia and the Asia-Pacific
2011 (English)In: Asian Security, ISSN 1479-9855, E-ISSN 1555-2764, Vol. 7, no 2, 169-175 p.Article, book review (Refereed) Published
Two recent books make significant contributions to the scholarly literature both in East Asian security studies and in international relations theory more generally. While developing international relations theory by drawing from the non-Western experiences of East Asia, these books complement the existing international relations theory that has been criticized for being overly West-centric. The books also develop some interesting East Asian, neopragmatic ideas on the “theory of theory” in international relations. These ideas have a potential of not only changing our answers to questions about East Asian security but also reformulating the questions we ask in our investigation of international security issues.
