This book examines the intellectual, cultural, social, psychological, political, economic and strategic dimensions of this burgeoning interaction. The discussions contained in the twelve essays, written by specialists and experts in Asia-Pacific international relations, focus on the likely impacts of this Asian-Western interaction on the political, economic, cultural and strategic landscape of the Asia-Pacific region.

The changing roles of the major Asia-Pacific powers, especially the United States, China and Japan, are analyzed in relation to the interests and involvement of other equally important actors such as Australia, Canada and Asean. It also incorporates analyses and commentaries on the strategic implications of the Asian Financial Crisis, especially how it might impact on future Asia-Pacific interactions and regional stability in the new millennium.
