The Indian Ocean region has rapidly emerged as the geographic nexus of economic and security issues with vital global consequences. This volume is one of the first attempts to treat the Indian Ocean Region in a coherent fashion. Contributors discuss points of cooperation and competition in a region that stretches from East Africa, to Singapore, to Australia, and assess the regional interests of the China, India, Pakistan, and the United States. Chapters review possible "red lines" for Chinese security in the region, the oceanic ambitions of India and Pakistan, and threats from non-state actors-terrorists, pirates, and criminal groups-who challenge security on the ocean for all states. This volume will interest academics, professionals, and researchers with interests in international relations, Asian security, and maritime studies.
