"The Far East and Australasia 2003" is a unique and extensive collection of facts, analysis, statistics and directory information on this vast region.
Profiling the latest issues and events in one accessible volume, it provides a general survey and a collection of introductory essays analyzing issues affecting the region as a whole. The essays are written by leading authorities on this part of the world and so provide well-researched and impartial information. Topics covered include population; the environment; terrorism/security issues; religion, and the Asian-Pacific Community. A bibliography is included.
Individual country and territory surveys present essays on physical and social geography, history and economy; a statistical survey with the latest figures on key economic indicators; and an exhaustive directory section of invaluable contact names and addresses, telephone and fax numbers and e-mail and internet addresses within the government, judiciary, the media, publishing, broadcasting and communications, finance, trade and industry and other key areas.
A regional information section includes details of organizations operating in or connected with the region, as well as information about the major commodities of the area and research institutes studying the Far East and Australasia.
