How Leading States Respond to Rising Regional Powers

How Leading States Respond to Rising Regional Powers

(p.10) Chapter 1 How Leading States Respond to Rising Regional Powers
In the Hegemon's Shadow

Evan Braden Montgomery

Cornell University Press

This chapter examines how leading states respond to rising regional powers (RRPs). More specifically, it asks why leading states have accommodated some emerging powers in peripheral regions but opposed others. Before discussing the different strategies employed by RRPs to deal with power shifts in peripheral regions, the chapter proposes a theory that addresses a pair of issues: the type of regional order that a leading state prefers and the type of power shift that appears to be taking place. It also considers the two main risks that determine whether a leading state will favor regional parity, regional primacy, or both: the risk of access denial and the risk of containment failure. Finally, it explores the relationship between a leading state's risk assessment and its preferred regional order.

Keywords:   leading states, rising regional powers, peripheral regions, power shifts, regional parity, regional primacy, access denial, containment failure, risk assessment
