‘Once again Joseph Camilleri has written a major work. Drawing on a vast literature, he has compiled a coherent whole out of the innumerable pieces of the vast puzzle that is the Asia Pacific. Conceiving ofthe area as three regional subsystems, his analysis is an impressive blend of historical, conceptual, and empirical materials that focus on the interplay of geopolitics and geoeconomics in a major part of the world that will substantially shape the course of world affairs in the decades ahead. Camilleri brings a keen understanding of the dynamics of change, democratization, and civil society to bear on both the varieties and uniformities to be found in the Asia-Pacific at the outset of a new century.’

- James N. Rosenau, The George Washington University

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.

Nowin paperback, 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.
