Description

The definitive guide to the world's most contested region. The Indo-Pacific is both a place and an idea. It is the region central to global prosperity and security.

It is also a metaphor for collective action. If diplomacy fails, it will be the theatre of the first general war since 1945.

But if its future can be secured, the Indo-Pacific will flourish as a shared space, the centre of gravity in a connected world. What we call different parts of the world - Asia, Europe, the Middle East - seems innocuous.

But the name of a region is totemic, guiding the decisions of leaders and the story of international order, war and peace.

In recent years, the label 'Indo-Pacific' has suddenly gained wide use.

But what does it really mean?Written by a globally-renowned expert, Indo-Pacific Empire is the definitive guide to tensions in the region.

It deftly weaves together history, geopolitics, cartography, military strategy, economics, games and propaganda to address a vital question: how can China's dominance be prevented without war? -- .
