              Barack Obama s rebalancing strategy or pivot strategy, intended to demonstrate continued US commitment to the Asia Pacific region in a variety of military, economic and diplomatic contexts, was launched with much fanfare in 2011. Implicit in the new strategy is both a focus on Ch...ina, both engagement with, and containment of, and also a demonstration of how far the US relies on its existing allies in the region to implement its strategy. This book explores the impact of the new strategy on the US s allies in the region, and the allies responses. It shows how the US s allies are fearful of direct confrontation with China; how they are concerned about the ability of the US to sustain the strategy in the long run; and how the US has differing degrees of engagement with different allies. Overall, the book outlines the deep complexities of the United States exercise of power and influence in the region.

              Barack Obama's rebalancing or pivot strategy, intended to demonstrate continued US commitment to the Asia-Pacific region in a variety of military, economic, and diplomatic contexts, was launched with much fanfare in 2011. Implicit in the new strategy is both a focus on China - en...gagement with, and containment of - and a heavy reliance by the United States on its existing friends and allies in the region in order to implement its strategy. This book explores the impact of the new strategy on America's regional friends and allies. It shows how these governments are working with Washington to advance and protect their distinct national interests, while at the same time avoiding any direct confrontation with China. It also addresses the reasons why many of these regional actors harbour concerns about the ability of the US to sustain the pivot strategy in the long run. Overall, the book illustrates the deep complexities of the United States' exercise of power and influence in the region.

              In 1981, Glasgow is dying and good families grift to survive. Agnes Bain has always expected more out of life. She dreams of greater things: a house with its own front door and a life bought and paid for outright (like her perfect, but fake, teeth). As she descends deeper into al...cohol, her three children try their best to save her, yet one by one they must abandon her to save themselves. Shuggie Bain, the youngest, holds out hope the longest. Shuggie is different. Fastidious and fussy, he's picked on by the miner's children and even the adults condemn him to be no' right. But Shuggie believes that if he practices his hardest, he can be normal like the other boys and help his mother escape this hopeless place.
