  5. Regional Security in the Asia Pacific

    Regional Security in the Asia Pacific

    Edited by Marika Vicziany, David Wright-Neville, Pete Lentini
    The September 2001 terrorist attacks shocked the world. But what did they change? In this book Asia specialists from academe and policy think tanks assess the impact of 9/11 on the Asia Pacific. Drawing on unique fieldwork, access to a wide range of documents and inside expertise, the authors consider how old geo-strategic and cultural fault lines have been overlaid with new security threats from state and non-state actors. With chapters on specific countries and regions, defense policies, terrorism, and current and potential conflict zones, this collection critically examines the Asia Pacific region’s post-9/11, as well as post-Iraq war, security architecture.

  7. Globalisation and the New Terror

    Globalisation and the New Terror

    Edited by David M. Jones
    This rigorously analytical yet readable book examines trends in new terror – understood here to be the capacity of sub-state actors to secure religious or politically motivated objectives by violent means. The contributors argue that whilst the use of violence to achieve political ends is scarcely original, what distinguishes new terror is its potential for lethality. This, combined with its evolving capacity to draw upon the resources of globalisation, particularly the revolution in communications which has advanced global markets, has also rendered them, and the more developed core states in the international trading order, increasingly vulnerable to asymmetric threats.

    Regionalism in the New Asia-Pacific Order

    Joseph A. Camilleri
    Regionalism in the Asia-Pacific is a complex, diverse, highly contested and still rapidly evolving phenomenon.

  9. Reducing Poverty in Asia

    Reducing Poverty in Asia

    Edited by Christopher M. Edmonds
    In this book, a group of distinguished authors addresses three broad questions: what broad strategies and macroeconomic policies best support poverty reduction efforts in Asia; what role should targeted antipoverty interventions play, and how should such interventions be designed; and how is poverty measured, what new approaches are needed, and how does measurement affect our understanding of poverty. Each of these three broad themes is also considered together in chapters examining the poverty situations in a number of countries in Asia and the Pacific. Learn More

    Edited by Colin Barrow, Francis K.W. Loh
    Malaysia is one of the fastest growing economies in the world today, and this book reflects current debates about the future directions of the national economy, polity and society in light of the late 1900s watershed period of financial crisis, the arrest of Anwar Ibrahim and the subsequent 1999 general election.

  14. Crisis and Recovery in Malaysia

    Crisis and Recovery in Malaysia

    Prema-chandra Athukorala
    The prime focus of the book is on Malaysia’s radical policy decision to pursue an independent recovery path, cut off from world markets by a system of capital control, as a viable alternative to the conventional market centred approach. The analysis suggests that, against the initial dire predictions of many economists, the capital controls have actually played a crucial supportive role in crisis management. Whether the controls have played a special role in delivering a superior recovery outcome in Malaysia compared to IMF-program countries remains a point of contention. However, there is strong evidence to suggest that this pragmatic policy choice was instrumental in achieving recovery, while minimising potential economic disruption and related social costs.
