The International Relations of Northeast Asiaby Samuel S. Kim (Editor), Thomas Berger (Contribution by), Kent E. Calder (Contribution by), Lowell Dittmer (Contribution by), William W. Grimes (Contribution by)
Complaining that theories of regionalism are too little applied to the study of Northeast Asian international relations, Kim (political science, Columbia U.) presents 11 papers that take a regional approach to the topic. After his own introductory essay on regionalism in theory and practice, he presents studies of major power interaction among the "big four" of Northeast Asian international relationsChina, Japan, Russia, and the United States. Subsequent chapters look at the regional flashpoints between the Koreas and between Taiwan and China. A final essay describes a view of the emerging Northeast Asian regional order.
