Summary Why do countries go to war over disputed lands? This revisionist study identifies the process of decolonisation as the root of contemporary Asian interstate territorial conflicts. It does so by foregrounding the political implications of identifying a fixed territorial homeland as a necessary starting point for international recognition as well as establishing national identity.
Contents Territory and foreign policy -- A brief international history of the nation-state -- Diaspora as foreign policy -- Geopolitics as foreign policy.
Bibliography Note Includes bibliographical references (pages 191-205) and index.
