Epigraph
... general American understanding of the problems of Asia forms one of the most important frontiers of knowledge, or at least education, in the whole world today. IN this sense, the greatest foreign-policy frontier this country faces dos not lie in Europe or even in Asia but right here, on the campuses of our colleges. in primary and secondary-school rooms, and in the forums of public debate.

.... It is our Asian frontiers of knowledge which today offer the greatest challenge both as a field of basic research about human society and as a field of general education that requires urgent development.

ASIA IN THE MODERN WORLD

What are the explosive forces at work inside Asia today?
Why has Asia in the past two decades suddenly loomed so important in the destinies of the Western unions?

A new, objective, understanding of Asia - of what is happening in its vast lands among its millions of people - is an imperative for the Western world. In this fascinating book experts in their field of Asian studies discuss the continent's geography, political history, and rich cultural heritage. they detail the problems facing modern Asia, with its newly independent nations ... and they pinpoint, for the Western reader. Asia's unique and increasingly dominant position in the world community
