Bridging a Gulf: Peace-Building in West Asia (Hardcover), by Majid Tehranian (Editor). I. B. Tauris (April 19, 2003).
From 1980 to the present, two bloody wars and the possibility of a third have characterized the Persian Gulf region. Emerging from a series of meetings of the International Commission for Security and Cooperation in West Asia, this volume consists of contributions from noted scholars and diplomats searching for the peaceful settlement of regional disputes and the establishment of a durable security regime. Peace scholars from Iran, Iraq and Kuwait edit the volume – the three countries that were at war in 1980-88 and 1990-91.   Information

China's War on Terrorism: Counter-Insurgency, Politics and Internal Security (Asian Security Studies) (Hardcover), by Martin I. Wayne. Routledge; 1 edition (December 20, 2007).
China’s war on terror is among its most prominent and least understood of campaigns. With links to the global jihad, an indigenous insurgency threatens the governments grip on a massive region of north- western China known as Xinjiang. Riots, bombings, ambushes, and assassinations have rocked the region under separatist and Islamist banners. China acted early and forcefully, and although brutal, their efforts represent one of the few successes in the global struggle against Islamist terrorism. The effectiveness of this campaign has raised questions regarding whether China genuinely confronts a terrorist threat. In this book, based on extensive fieldwork, Martin Wayne investigates China’s counterinsurgency effort, highlighting the success of an approach centered on reshaping local society and government institutions. At the same time, he raises the question of what the United States may be able to learn from China’s approach, and argues that as important a case as Xinjiang needs to be fully examined in order for terrorism to be defeated.

All of these developments had an important impact on regional order, not least testing the ASEAN norm of 'non-interference'.  Information

Representing Rebellion: Visual Aspects of Counter-Insurgency in Colonial India (Hardcover), by Daniel J. Rycroft. Oxford University Press, USA (February 9, 2006).
This volume is a study of British nineteenth-century representations of India in the popular press, specifically the Illustrated London News around 1850-56. It focuses on the work of Walter Sherwill, in particular his treatment of the Santhal hul and also looks at earlier and later work by Sherwill and others in the same journal. The monograph analyzes the visual narrativization of counter-insurgency campaigns and discusses in detail how various colonial and metropolitan communities emerged as having an important input into the discourses of imperial domination. Using the analytical framework called the 'counter-insurgency complex', the author offers a new field of inquiry which is attentive to both the metropolitan and colonial representational strategies, and more specifically to the entanglement between colonial panopticism, imperial narratives of counter-insurgency, and the metropolitan exhibitionary complex.  Information

Resisting Dictatorship: Repression and Protest in Southeast Asia (Hardcover), by Vincent Boudreau. Cambridge University Press (December 27, 2004).

He includes first-hand research as well as the the social movements' literature to consider the interactions between the regimes in the wake of repression, and the subsequent emergence of democracy. Boudreau offers a genuinely comparative study of dictatorship and resistance in South East Asia.  Information

South Asia (Current History Books) (Hardcover), by Sumit Ganguly. NYU Press (April 1, 2006).
In recent years the world's focus on South Asia has increased dramatically. With the events of 9/11, the detonation of atomic weapons by both India and Pakistan, the discovery of an illicit nuclear proliferation network based in Islamabad, regime change in an unstable Afghanistan, and the rise of India as an economic power, global interest in the region has reached perhaps an all-time high.

South Asia also contains current maps as well as a "Recent Chronology of Events" that provides a decade's worth of information on the region, organized by year and by country. This timely and comprehensive collection of essays provides a definitive account of modern South Asia.  Information
