In this Book

summary
For the nations on its borders, the rapid rise of China represents an opportunity—but it also brings worry, especially in areas that have long been disputed territories of contact and exchange. This book gathers contributors from a range of disciplines to look at how people in those areas are actively engaging in making relationships across the border, and how those interactions are shaping life in the region—and in the process helping to reconfigure the cultural and political landscape of post–Cold War Asia.
