As neoliberalism plunges into deeper crisis, militarism and wars are being promoted and intensified throughout the world, especially in the Asia-Pacific region. The US’ economic decline and China’s growing economic and military strength are forcing US imperialism to adopt a more belligerent attitude towards China. Economic and military arrangements long thought to be stable are being reconfigured. A multipolar world is being born. Threats and dangers are aplenty, but opportunities for people’s movements and pro-people governments to strengthen also abound. There’s no way around it: the threats and dangers must be known, exposed and opposed so opportunities for people’s movements and pro-people governments can be seized and maximized. This book is a humble contribution to such an endeavor.
