Hard choices : security, democracy, and regionalism in Southeast Asia by Donald K Emmerson( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Security has long trumped democracy as a priority for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). But the brutal dictatorship in Burma/Myanmar, political pluralism in Indonesia, and the global growth of democratic norms have led some Southeast Asians to question ASEAN's habit of turning a blind eye to domestic abuses by member states. The concept of regional security, meanwhile, is being reoriented from military threats toward new dangers to health and the environment and from state security toward human security. Will promoting democracy cause local autocrats to hunker down and split ASEAN into hostile camps? Will ignoring demands for democracy allow domestic pressures to rise to dangerous levels? Should Burma/Myanmar be expelled or engaged? How should ASEAN respond to nontraditional threats to security in which member states are themselves implicated? In Hard Choices, experts grapple with these and other key and controversial questions for Southeast Asia today and tomorrow. 505
From crisis to opportunity : financial globalization and East Asian capitalism( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book identifies and accounts for empirical regularities across East Asian countries and sectors, which previous studies have left largely unexplained. In general, the distinguished contributors to this collection conclude that the interaction between financial globalization and domestic politics is the key to unlocking the reform process. In particular, the authors address issues important to the study of East Asian political economies - their receptivity to financial globalization, their financial integration, the convergence or divergence of their economic institutions, and the impact that their institutional transformations will have on national competitive advantage and the global economic system."--Jacket

Growing pains : tensions and opportunity in China's transformation( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China is transforming itself, and the world is adapting in response. Profound forces have reshaped the country's socioeconomic and political landscapes, but they have also brought challenges-growing pains-that China must face if it is to continue its upward trajectory. Despite its successes, China is experiencing sharp growing pains. Rising levels of protest have accompanied the country's wrenching structural transformation. Corruption has prompted some observers to claim that the Chinese government in nothing short of a "predatory state." Legal reform continues to languish. Given that such challenges remain, it might be said that China's structural changes have succeeded. Or, perhaps the country is trapped in transition. This publication contains research presented by preeminent scholars at a conference hosted by the Stanford China Program (SCP) at the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center, held at Stanford University on November 1-3, 2008. The authors identify which of the many problems thought to threaten China's reforms are not as serious as some interpreters claim, as well as those that have already been solved. Other high-profile challenges are highlighted. Some are truly serious and loom on the horizon, such as China's ongoing reforms, employment, land policy, village elections, family planning, health care, social inequality, and environmental degradation. Rich survey data and on-the-ground observation are used to assess the severity of the problems and the likelihood of near-term solutions

Going private in China : the politics of corporate restructuring and system reform( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With policy-relevant acuity and theoretical insights, the contributors to this wide-ranging volume address the questions about reform programs that have plagued China--and East Asia more broadly--since the 1990s. While China, Japan, and South Korea have all been criticized for implementing reform too slowly or too selectively, this volume delves into the broader contexts underlying certain institutional decisions. The book seeks to show that seemingly different political economies actually share surprising similarities, and problems. It examines what happens when sweeping systemic changes needed for effective reform are not possible all at once, and shows the difference state-led change can make in mediating the lack of basic institutions, including a national social security system. While Going Private in China sheds new light on China's corporate restructuring, it also offers new perspectives on how we think about the process of institutional change. --Book Jacket
Anti-Americanism in democratizing South Korea by David Straub( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beyond North Korea : future challenges to South Korea's security( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To the west, a rising China seems intent on restoring its millennia-long influence over the entire peninsula. And domestically, the South must deal with the downsides of its enormously successful modernization, including the world's second-lowest birthrate, a rapidly aging society, economic slowdown', energy shortages, and environmental degradation. In view of the increasing U.S.-PRC rivalry, Seoul's failure to deal successfully with this myriad of security threats could risk not only its own peace and prosperity but also those of the region and even the world

Making IT : the rise of Asia in high tech( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Making IT examines the causes as well as the major consequences of the dramatic rise of Asia in this industry. The book systematically analyzes each country's policies and results, on both a national level and, more importantly, in the innovation regions that have developed in each country: Japan's excellence in technology and manufacturing skills; Bangalore, India's late start and sudden explosion; Taiwan's Hsinchu Science-based Parks entrepreneurship and steady growth; Korea's Teheren Valley's impressive development of large companies; Singapore's initial reliance on multinational firms and its more recent switch to a home-developed strategy; and China's Zhongguancun Science Park's encouragement of investment from foreign firms while also promoting a domestic IT industry. The book outlines the difficulties in the IT industry, including Japan's tendency to keep out most foreign firms and China's poor protection of intellectual property. Developed by the team that brought readers The Silicon Valley Edge, Making IT analyzes why this region has an advantage in this industry, the similarities and differences in the countries strategies, why companies have clustered in specific localities, and most important, what will be changing in the coming years

"New beginnings" in the U.S.-ROK alliance : recommendations to the Obama administration( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these uncertain times, the new Obama administration has an important opportunity to transform our vitally important alliance with the Republic of Korea (ROK, or South Korea) into a broader and deeper regional and even global partnership. South Korean President Lee Myung-bak is committed to the concept, and he has four more years in office to work with President Obama on it. The South Korean public also feels considerable goodwill toward President Obama. South Korea is key to American interests in dealing with North Korea and China, and, as the world's thirteenth-largest economy, it is a factor in all regions of the world."
