Globalisation and the Asia-Pacific: Contested Territories
Peter Dicken, Philip F. Kelly, Lily Kong, Kris Olds, Henry Wai-chung Yeung
Routledge, Jun 27, 2005 - Social Science - 320 pages
Most books that analyse the crucial subject of globalisation only look at it from a western perspective. This is the first detailed study to look at globalisation specifically in the Asia-Pacific region. An impressive collection of leading, interdisciplinary scholars explore various dimensions of globalisation and their relationship to development processes in the region.
