Summary

The third of the “Tom Plate on Asia” series, Yo-Yo Diplomacy compiles the compelling and insightful columns on Asia by award-winning journalist Tom Plate over the past two years. From tensions in the South China Sea to China's stock market turbulence and Hong Kong's bookseller saga, the veteran columnist continues to examine the rise of Asia and the role of America in this dynamic and diverse region.

The collection is enlivened with thoughtful retrospectives and personal comments providing vivid back stories. The result is an informative and readable anthology that would prove valuable not only political and current affairs commentators, but also to the layperson wishing to learn more about pivotal developments in the Asia-Pacific region.
