Abstract "Today the Asia-Pacific region stands on the edge of major change, with centuries of western-dominated regional order being seriously challenged and quite possibly nearing an endpoint. The emergence of a potential new order dominated by regional rather than extra regional powers--an 'Asia for the Asiatics' in the words of Japan's pan-Asian scholars--means it is now more than ever crucial to understand the history of the current western-dominated system, the full implications should it continue and the nature of the West's intentions towards the region. This book attempts to elucidate the complex and little-known history of western intervention in the Asia-Pacific, providing information critical to understanding contemporary developments"-- Provided by publisher.
