This impressive collection of leading, interdisciplinary experts explores various dimensions of globalization, and their relationship to development processes in the region. "Globalisation and the Asia-Pacific" provides diverse accounts of how globalization is being experienced, understood, managed and resisted at various scales in relation to development processes in the Asia-Pacific. This radical new perspective provides an invaluable analysis for political scientists, as well as those involved in human geography, sociology, international political economy, development studies, asian studies and economics.
