by Eric Farnsworth
“Beijing offers to the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean the opportunity to forge a path independent of the United States and liberal economic orthodoxy.”
Pax Americana and the Rising Powers
by Rajan Menon

Perspective: A New Strategy on Myanmar
by MORTON ABRAMOWITZ and JONATHAN KOLIEB
International indignation and efforts to isolate the brutal junta have not helped the very people whom outsiders want to aid—Myanmar's long-suffering citizens.
China Needs Help with Climate Change
by Kelly Sims Gallagher
"As a developing country, China still lacks many of the institutions, policies, and enforcement mechanisms that are needed to foster technology transfer and environmental protection."
Russia and China: The Ambivalent Embrace

What If a Nuclear-Armed State Collapses?
by MICHAEL O'HANLON

India and the Asian Security Architecture
by VARUN SAHNI
"By building robust political and economic links with both China and the United States, India could end up playing an important catalytic role in bringing both countries together in a new cooperative Asia."
Asia’s Challenged Giants
by SHALENDRA D. SHARMA
"China and India are already major players in the global economy. However, their impact in coming decades on the world's economic and strategic landscape will depend . . . on how each deals with its structural and economic challenges."
The Great Powers in Central Asia
by MARTHA BRILL OLCOTT

by Dinshaw Mistry
The middle-term challenges of averting a nuclear arms race in Asia are closely linked to the more immediate concern of reversing proliferation in North Korea.
The Latin Americanization of China?
by George J. Gilboy and Eric Heginbotham
Land reforms aimed at raising rural incomes and promoting urbanization could accelerate the crisis already building in China's cities. If urban legal and social reforms fail to keep pace, China could face intensifying conflict between a burgeoning class of have-nots and an entitled minority, a consolidated alliance between political leaders and business and social elites, and a host of other social and political ills familiar to many Latin American states.
China's Dubious Role in the War on Terror

"Houston, We Have a Problem": China and the Race to Space
by Joan Johnson-Freese
"If the United States continues to exploit the obvious military advantages of space and China feels compelled to respond, a space race seems inevitable. It is inevitable because both countries recognize that space can provide advantages, or at least avoid disadvantages, regarding the other. Space may inevitably make China the third man in the fourth battlefield."
Tilting at Dominos: America and Al Qaeda in Southeast Asia
by Joshua Kurlantzick
"American officials have turned their attention toward Southeast Asian policymaking-something largely ignored since the end of the Vietnam War-and have declared Southeast Asia the 'second front' in the global campaign against terror. . . . [But] backing Southeast Asia's often brutal and compromised militaries, which themselves contain elements linked to Islamist radicals, will only boost human rights abuses, breeding popular resentment and setting the stage for more terror."
Same War, Different Views: Germany, Japan, and the War on Terrorism
by Peter J. Katzenstein
"The tendency of the Bush administration to frame terrorism as a threat posed equally by evil states and nonstate groups is . . . distinctive. It is easy to lose sight of how atypical, even among liberal democracies, are the American view of international life in Manichaean terms and the American emphasis on the military dimension of society. Germany's and Japan's very different approaches to counterterrorism are useful reminders of American exceptionalism."
