Professor Saadia Pekkanen has published The Oxford Handbook of the International Relations of Asia with co-editors John Ravenhill and Rosemary Foot. The book is published by Oxford University Press. In the past quarter century, the importance of Asia in international relations has grown exponentially. This Handbook gathers the most important scholars in the field of Asia’s international relations to address this momentous change in world politics. The editors and contributors focus on three basic themes: assessing appropriate theories for explaining the evolution of the international relations of Asian countries within the region and with the rest of the world; tracing the recent history of Asia in world politics; and focusing on emerging trends.
