“Asia’s Security, provides a valuable guide for those looking to make sense of it all. … the author provides a crisp, systematic and readable analysis of what really constitutes security in Asia and what (if anything) can be clone to manage it better. … Those seeking to understand what is really happening in Asia, where New Zealand's interests are as much engaged as ever, will find this a most useful book.” (Mark Pearson, New Zealand International Review, Vol. 42 (3), May-June, 2017)
