The Contenders: The Rise of the Pacific Powers

Front Cover
The author's belief (based upon his many years of academic and professional experience of the Pacific region) is that there are two groups of nations and ethnic communities scattered around the three potential superpowers, arranged geographically as an inner ring and an outer ring. He argues convincingly that these nations (such as Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia) hold the clues to ultimate dominance. Subtle shifts of allegiance can make the difference between economic strength and weakness. The Contenders is the most thorough and up-to-date introduction to the complex and rapidly changing Pacific scene available. It will be invaluable for students of International or Comparative Management, for those studying at MBA level, and for all members of the business community who need information they can trust.
