Book description

The Routledge Handbook of Politics in Asia is designed to serve as a comprehensive reference guide to politics in Asia. Covering East, South, Southeast, and Central Asia, this handbook brings together the work of leading international academics to cover the political histories, institutions, economies, and cultures of the region. Taking a comparative approach, it is divided into four parts, including:

  • A thorough introduction to the politics of the four regions of Asia from the perspectives of democratization, foreign policy, political economy, and political culture.
  • An examination of the "Big Three" of Asia ? China, India, and Japan ? focusing on issues including post-Mao reform, China?s new world outlook, Indian democracy, and Japanese foreign policy.
  • A discussion of important contemporary issues, such as human rights, the politics of the internet, security, nationalism, and geopolitics.
  • An analysis of the relationship between politics and certain theoretical ideas, such as Confucianism, Hinduism, socialist constitutionalism, and gender norms.

As an invaluable and all-inclusive resource, this handbook will be useful for students, scholars, researchers, and practitioners of Asian politics and comparative politics.
