Asia-Pacific: New Geographies of the Pacific Rim
The great processes reshaping our world today can be summed up by the term 'globalisation'. Together with the communications revolution and massive urbanisation, it is reshaping the organisation of global space. It is illustrated by technological change, pronounced economic growth, the dominance of giant corporations, ever more open markets and universal consumption.
This book, written by leading scholars from the region, examines the extent to which Pacific Rim economies - especially East Asia and Southeast Asia - are increasingly integrated, and considers the economic, political and cultural forces at work.
