Asia and the Road Ahead: Issues for the Major Powers
Asia and the Road Ahead: Issues for the Major Powers
By Robert A. Scalapino
University of California Press, 1975, 337 pp

Trends: for Japan and China, more of the same; for India, authoritarian subcontinental hegemony; for the U.S., vacillation; for the U.S.S.R., aggrandizement.
