At the conclusion of World War II Asia was hardly more than a geographic expression. Yet today we recognize Asia as a vibrant and assertive region fully transformed from the vulnerable nation-states that emerged following the Second World War. The transformation was by no means an inevitable one but the product of two key themes that have dominated Asia’s international relations since 1945 – the competition between the United States and the Soviet Union to enlist the region’s states as assets in the Cold War and the struggle of nationalistic Asian leaders to develop the domestic support to maintain power and independence in a dangerous international context. Becoming Asia provides a comprehensive systemic account of how these themes played out in Asian affairs during the postwar years covering not only East Asia but South and Central Asia as well. In addition to exploring the interplay between nationalism and Cold War bipolarity during the first postwar decades authors Alice Lyman Miller and Richard Wich chart the rise of largely export-led economies that are increasingly making the region the global center of gravity and document efforts in the ongoing search for regional integration.Printed Pages: 330.
