The continent of Asia is the largest of continents and houses 60% of the world’s population. Geographically, topographically, culturally, religiously, the continent’s diverse characteristics present it as a unique specimen. Within her indigenous modernity lies her uniqueness, sharply divergent from her contemporaries. Countries of south, southeast, west, east and central Asia have passed through periods of change in their long undulating history. The basic theme of this book rotates around different countries in the Asian Block framing foreign policies, diplomatic relations and enacting diverse strategies in the game of International Politics with the distinctive purpose to win over the others and also the role played by the regional and extra-regional big powers. Inspite of the threats the countries are facing in the context of borders, ethnic unrest, environmental degradation, processes of democratization, human rights, the countries of south, southeast and east Asia are showing remarkable growth and development. The usage of 21st century as Asian century best suits, when we take into consideration the overall development in the regions of south, southeast and east Asia. From the perspective of international relations, the purpose of the book is to make the readers aware of the current scenario of Asian countries and the diverse games played differently by the Asian countries on socio-economic, ecological, religious, diplomatic and other issues. The book targets academicians, researchers in politics, international relations, strategic studies, geopolitics and public administration, policy makers, and general readers.
