Rowman and Littlefield, 1998 - Pacific Area - 384 pages
This pathbreaking, multidisciplinary work challenges our unthinking acceptance of such terms as "Asia Pacific" and "Pacific Rim." Clarifying the hidden power relationships and hegemonic struggles that are disguised by ideological constructions of the region, the contributors uncover fundamental contradictions - including the human costs and consequencesthat underlie the much-celebrated economic boom.
