Edited by Ashley J. Tellis and Michael Wills, and written by some of America’s leading specialists including Minxin Pei, senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, this book examines the strategic balance in Asia and the increasing levels of trade and interdependence in the region, assessing the implications for the United States.

Strategic Asia 2006–07: Trade, Interdependence, and Security, the sixth volume in NBR’s Strategic Asia series, examines how trade and interdependence fit into the grand strategies of various Asian states and how changing economic relationships could affect regional stability in Asia. Through a combination of country, regional, and topical studies, the book assesses trade and investment dynamics in the region, the rise of new powers, the ongoing processes of globalization, and the impact of economic interdependence on security, and evaluates how these trends are altering Asia's strategic environment.
