Co-edited and introduced by Ashley J. Tellis, Strategic Asia 2016-17: Understanding Strategic Cultures in the Asia-Pacific examines how the region's major powers view international politics and the use of military force. In each chapter, a leading expert analyzes the ideological and historical sources of a country's strategic culture, how strategic culture informs the thinking of the country's policymakers, and how these understandings lead to decisions about the pursuit of strategic objectives and national power.
