Strategic Asia 2021–22: Navigating Tumultuous Times in the Indo-Pacific assesses the impact of three major trends on the geopolitical environment of the Indo-Pacific region: intensifying strategic competition between China and the United States, growing pushback against globalization, and the Covid-19 pandemic. Each chapter examines how these challenges shape the security environment, grand strategy, and national and economic power for a country or in a region and analyzes the implications for U.S. interests.
