   schema:description "This book illuminates the complex interplay between specifically regional concerns and the wider international context which together define the regional hierarchy of states. On top of that hierarchy is the regional great power. Building on seven case-studies of Brazil, India, Indonesia, Israel, Poland, South Africa and Vietnam, the authors demonstrate how this status cannot be attained simply by building up a huge military or economic power base. The attitudes and ambitions of the aspiring state, its regional neighbours and the great powers with global interests and reach must all be taken into consideration. The sheer number of factors which sustain regional great powerhood makes that status a precarious one. Although the end of the cold war may open up new regional space for regional great powers to exploit and so make them more important in providing for regional order, the autonomy of regions may still easily be overestimated."@en ;
