Booknews
Political scientist Dong questions the assumption that economic cooperation in the Pacific is the result of initiatives taken by the US as the hegemonic power in the region. He examines the roles and perspectives of China, Japan, and southeast Asian states. He finds that the institution, policies, and practices have been developed with the input of many players and that the process is becoming increasingly Asianized.
