Routledge, 1999 - Business & Economics - 293 pages
The discourse of globalization has, until now, been embedded in the context of the West - Europe and North America. Even though the Asia-Pacific region is at the forefront of globalization processes, it has received far less attention. This volume provides a detailed study which looks at globalization in the Asia-Pacific region. A collection of interdisciplinary scholars explore various dimensions of globalization, and their relationship to development processes in the region. The text includes accounts of how globalization is being experienced, understood, managed and resisted at various scales in relation to development processes in the Asia-Pacific region. This perspective should provide valuable analysis for political scientists, as well as those involved in human geography, sociology, international political economy, development studies, Asian studies and economics.
