& Academics:
New security challenges are increasingly important in U.S. security planning. Transnational threats that do not arise from national rivalries or involve geopolitical competitionclimate change, food insecurity, pandemic disease, terrorism, and cybercrimecan destabilize a country just as severely as an invading army. All of these pose threats to Asia and are particularly problematic for China due to its size, development, and governance. New Security Challenges in Asia focuses on the sources of these challenges, analyzes their international impact, and suggests actions to wrestle them into manageable condition.

Asian nations have found it difficult to respond effectively to these new security challenges. Resources and technical capacity are scarce, as are cooperation and coordination within governments, between governments, and between governments, the private sector, and civil society. New Security Challenges in Asia shows how these threats are less susceptible to traditional diplomacy or military resolution and recommends ways the U.S. can help Asian nations address them constructively.
''A superior work in that it does a superb job in addressing the four major challenges of water security, food security, pandemic diseases, and crime/terrorism.''-John J. Brandon, The Asia Foundation
