The sudden and devastating financial crisis which swept East Asia in 1997,the continuing problems of economic restructuring in Russia, the perennial war in Afghanistan, the emerging challenges of energy security, trans-national terrorism, the continuing reliance on nuclear weapons, the transition of India and Pakistan across the nuclear threshold in May 1998(followed by their limited border war in Kargil in May-July1999) are only some of the more urgent issues of security which need to be evaluated comprehensively by all the countries of Asia, especially since all indications are that the next century will be an Asian Century.
