About this book

Critically explores the notion that a distinctive regional power bloc is developing linking countries bordering the Pacific.

Combining a broad historical and theoretical framework with country-specific and issue-specific empirical studies; this multi-authored volume is by far the best, most stimulating contribution to our thinking about the Asia-Pacific challenge in the post-Cold War era. It offers a prime text for courses in international relations in general and East Asian or Asia-Pacific international relations in particular.
-Professor Samuel S. Kim, East Asian Institute, Columbia University
