The twin processes of integration and fragmentation have been the distinguishing features of contemporary globalization. Nowhere is this more strikingly evident than in Asia Pacific.

This first volume of a two-volume study concentrates on the geopolitical and economic transformation of Asia Pacific. Specifically it focuses on the relationship between the decline of ideological bipolarity and dissolution of Cold War alliances on the one hand and the rapid industrialization of East Asia and the tensions generated by the shifts in the global and regional balance of economic interests on the other.

Particular attention is devoted to the three major powers (the United States, China and Japan) and to a number of small and middle powers in particular Indonesia, Malaysia, South Korea, Australia and Canada. Underpinning the entire analysis is the complex interplay of geopolitics, economy and culture.

States, Markets and Civil Society in Asia Pacific is essential reading for scholars and researchers of Asia Pacific politics and economy. The coherent analysis will also ensure the books appeal to those in NGOs and government agencies affected by, or working in, the region.
