Course Description

This upper-division undergraduate lecture course is designed to introduce students to the post-Cold War international relations of East and Southeast Asia. Particular attention will be devoted to issues that are of concern to Asians themselves, namely: human rights issues; ongoing threats (including terrorism and the N. Korean nuclear weapons program) to military security in the region; and the quest for economic prosperity.
