Publikace: Asia's Cauldron - Robert D. Kaplan. From Robert D. Kaplan, named one of the world’s Top 100 Global

Thinkers by Foreign Policy magazine, comes a penetrating look at

the volatile region that will dominate the future of geopolitical

conflict.

Over the last decade, the center of world power has been quietly

shifting from Europe to Asia. With oil reserves of several billion

barrels, an estimated nine hundred trillion cubic feet of natural

gas, and several centuries’ worth of competing territorial claims,

the South China Sea in particular is a simmering pot of potential

conflict. The underreported military buildup in the area where the

Western Pacific meets the Indian Ocean means that it will likely be

a hinge point for global war and peace for the foreseeable

future.

In Asia’s Cauldron, Robert D. Kaplan offers up a vivid snapshot of

the nations surrounding the South China Sea, the conflicts brewing

in the region at the dawn of the twenty-first century, and their

implications for global peace and stability. One of the world’s

most perceptive foreign policy experts, Kaplan interprets America’s

interests in Asia in the context of an increasingly assertive

China. He explains how the region’s unique geography fosters the

growth of navies but also impedes aggression. And he draws a

striking parallel between China’s quest for hegemony in the South

China Sea and the United States’ imperial adventure in the

Caribbean more than a century ago.

To understand the future of conflict in East Asia, Kaplan argues,

one must understand the goals and motivations of its leaders and

its people. Part travelogue, part geopolitical primer, Asia’s

Cauldron takes us on a journey through the region’s boom cities and

ramshackle slums: from Vietnam, where the superfueled capitalism of

the erstwhile colonial capital, Saigon, inspires the geostrategic

pretensions of the official seat of government in Hanoi, to

Malaysia, where a unique mix of authoritarian Islam and

Western-style consumerism creates quite possibly the ultimate

postmodern society; and from Singapore, whose “benevolent

autocracy” helped foster an economic miracle, to the Philippines,

where a different brand of authoritarianism under Ferdinand Marcos

led not to economic growth but to decades of corruption and

crime.

At a time when every day’s news seems to contain some new

story—large or small—that directly relates to conflicts over the

South China Sea, Asia’s Cauldron is an indispensable guide to a

corner of the globe that will affect all of our lives for years to

come.

Advance praise for Asia’s Cauldron “Asia’s Cauldron is a perfect summation of the present turbulent

moment in history, when the World War II security structure is

beginning a rapid transformation. Kaplan engages the striking

possibilities of where the current confrontation between China and

Japan could lead, and underscores the point that this is a lot more

significant than a simple border dispute.”—Paul Bracken, Yale

University, author of Th
