"...Ravenhill's superb case study of regionalism in the Pacific Rim will quickly become the standard text on APEC at the turn of the millenium." Business History Review
APEC and the Construction of Pacific Rim Regionalismby John Ravenhill
Since its establishment in 1989, APEC has graduated from a ministerial-level gathering of nine countries to an institution that stages annual summits, has a permanent secretariat, and whose twenty-one members have committed themselves to establishing free trade in the region. A decade after its foundation, however, members have been increasingly frustrated with the grouping's progress. In this theoretically sophisticated book, John Ravenhill examines the reasons for APEC's establishment, its evolution, and the causes of its failures.
