Overview

This important volume examines the vast potential of--and critical need for--cooperation among the neighboring states of the Pacific Rim. From economic and security matters to cultural and environmental concerns, the "Pacific Century" will require increased cross-border education, communication, and cooperation, which can be enhanced by regional organizations and agreements. This work offers a compilation of new thinking from international political, business, and academic leaders on the challenges facing the Pacific Rim in the next century, and proposes the emerging Pacific community as a model for global cooperation.

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)
