The Costs of Conflict: The Impact on China of a Future War. Edited by Dr. Andrew Scobell.

Jihadi Groups, Nuclear Pakistan, and the New Great Game. Authored by Dr. M. Ehsan Ahrari.
The author assesses Jihadi groups from the framework of a new "Great Game" for influence in Central Asia involving an array of states. He argues that, if this competition leads to increased violence, outside states including the United States could be drawn in. On the other hand, if the region stabilizes, it could provide solid economic and political partners for the United States. A well-designed American strategy, Ahrari contends, might help avoid crises or catastrophe.

Planning for a Peaceful Korea. Authored by Mr. Henry D. Sokolski.
With the change of administrations in Washington, current U.S. policy toward North Korea will naturally undergo review and scrutiny. The essays in this volume offer an option to the current engagement approach. The authors suggest an alternative strategy for promoting peace and security in the Korean peninsula different from the ones contemplated or implemented by Washington in recent years.
