Politics of the Indian Ocean Region: The Balances of Power
Politics of the Indian Ocean Region: The Balances of Power
By Ferenc A. Vali
Free Press, 1976, 272 pp

A comprehensive, almost encyclopedic treatise covering the policies of some four dozen countries in the Middle East, Africa, South and Southeast Asia and Australia, as well as the strategies of outside powers. The analysis is cautious and eschews prediction.
