Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A survey of political and economic relations among the countries bordering on the Pacific Ocean, with a heavy emphasis on Asian countries. The 23 studies cover regional cooperation as a whole, economic structures and relationships, government mechanisms for cooperation and integration, new security issues, emerging players, and directions for the future. The contributors are from those grey zones where government, academia, and business overlap. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
