Asia and the Road Ahead: Issues for the Major Powers

By Robert A. Scalapino

University of California Press, 1975, 337 pp.

This overview of the domestic and international issues confronting the major Asian nations attempts some forecasting, but it is necessarily broad-gauged and cautious. 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.
