The Asia-Pacific, Regionalism and the Global System

Edited by Christopher M. Dent, Professor of East Asia’s International Political Economy, University of Leeds and Jörn Dosch, Professor of International Politics and Development Cooperation, Department of Political and Administrative Sciences, University of Rostock, Germany

The expert contributors shed critical light on how significant developments are impacting on the global system. In particular, they consider emerging forms of global governance, and how the Asia-Pacific as a region, individual countries such as China, Japan, South Korea and the US, and regional organisations and forums like APEC are shaping the world. Uniquely, the discussion is not limited to East Asia but also takes Latin America prominently into the equation.

‘Dent and Dosch have put together a superb volume that explores new dimensions of the world events for the past five decades and takes the processes of decrypting regionalism, global system, and world society to a new height. The contributors have enhanced our understanding of how regionalism has been changing, when a world society will be created, and why East Asia’s centrality matters in this unfolding drama. Policy-makers, academics, and mass media opinion makers will find the book useful, provocative, and refreshing.’
– Eul-Soo Pang, Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore
