The third in a series that began with Gamble and Payne's Regionalism and World Order (1995) and Hook and Kearns' Subregionalism and World Order (1999), this text examines formal and informal regionalist politics within the context of the analyses presented in the first two volumes. Focusing on interaction and cooperation in political, economic, and security relationships, the ten papers presented by Breslin (politics, U. of Warwick, UK) and Hook (Japanese studies, U. of Sheffield, UK) address a conceptually and geographically diverse range of issues, including the achievements of the Tumen River Area Development Programme, involving the two Koreas, Russia, Mongolia, and Japan; the Maputo Development Corridor running through eastern South Africa to Maputo, the capital of Mozambique; and other development initiatives from the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, Japan, the Zambesi Basin, the U.S.-Mexico border, and around the Black Sea.
