Strategic Asia 2014–15:  U.S. Alliances and Partnerships at the Center of Global Power, from The National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR), examines the trajectories of U.S. alliance and partner relationships in the Indo-Pacific region in light of the region's shifting strategic landscape.  In the volume, leading experts provide comprehensive assessments of the current state of the United States' relations with its five treaty allies, as well as with emerging "strategic partners" in Asia, and draw implications for U.S. policy.

It is edited by Ashley J. Tellis, Abraham M. Denmark, and Greg Chaffin.  Tellis is a senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.  Denmark is NBR's vice president for political and security affairs.  Chaffin is an NBR project manager.

"The nature and escalating pace of events in the Asia-Pacific mark this as a moment full of opportunities for progress and advancement in the region, while simultaneously rife with threats to the 'long peace,'" Tellis writes in its preface.  "The United States and its allies and partners must adapt and closely coordinate to ensure that pivotal changes do not undermine U.S. vested interests in stability and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific."

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports NBR's Strategic Asia Program.
