William T. Tow, David Walton and Rikki Kersten, eds, New Approaches to Human Security in the Asia-Pacific: China, Japan and Australia, Farnham, Surrey: Ashgate, 2013.
This volume offers a distinctly Asia-Pacific-oriented perspective to human security. Regional experts assess countries that have either spearheaded this form of security politics (Japan and Australia) or have recently advanced to become a key player on various aspects of human security in both a domestic and global context (China). The authors provide an interesting investigation into the continued relevance and promise of the human security paradigm against more 'traditional' approaches.
