This text will be of particular interest to scholars and applicable to graduate courses in political science, international political economy, international organizations, corporate strategy and international business. It is also suitable for a broader market in the public policy community. Since the 1999 Cologne Summit, there have been three major developments in the international system: the advent of the electronic 'new' economy which has spread rapidly from the United States where it generated enormous wealth, to the rest of the world where it threatens to create a 'digital divide'; the protests against International Monetary Fund mandated adjustment programs; and the replacement of neo-liberal values that had dominated the global order of the 1980s and 1990s. It deals with the new issues at the centre of the Okinawa summit and focuses on those issues of central concern to Japan and Asia and provides an Asian perspective on key issues in global governance and order.
