    Asian Regional Governance: Crisis and Change

    This is welcome addition to the literatue on the Asia regional governance. If you want to understand why the current APEC summit in Chile is not likely to amount to much read this book . I also liked the chapters on China-Southeast relations. My only complaint is that I would have liked to see some material on security related issues .

    This is one of the best books on Asia- Pacific regionalism . The contributors strike out in a bold direction by exploring the domestic foundations of regional governance .
