Asian Peace: Security and Governance in the Asia Pacific Region
Bloomsbury Academic, 1999 - Political Science - 216 pages
The potential dichotomy between individual security and governance on a wider scale is nowhere more sharply in evidence than in the diverse political countries of the Asia-Pacific region. This timely volume examines the economic divergences within the region, the old-style communist dictatorships and new-style market communism, democratic capitalism, authoritarian capitalism and cultural diversity. Based on groundbreaking research by internationally renowned specialists, the book is essential reading.
