Beyond bilateralism : U.S.-Japan relations in the new Asia-Pacific by Ellis S Krauss( )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 2,055 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: This is the first comprehensive analysis of the ways in which changes in the geopolitical context have altered the nature of the long-stable U.S.-Japan relationship: much of what had once been a bilateral and relatively exclusive relationship has been transformed in the past two decades. The authors present eleven case studies of important domains?ranging from increased flows of private capital to international security concerns to the growing importance of multilateral organizations?in which the relationship has been altered to a greater or lesser degree. Individual chapters present new ways of understanding international financial flows, U.S.-Japan trade relations, and U.S.-Japan manufacturing rivalry. Others present very cogent synthetic analyses of the changing context of U.S.-Japan relations. Together they provide an account of the bilateral, regional, and global institutions?political, military, and financial?that dominate the geopolitics of U.S.-Asia relations. Although written to a consistently high intellectual level, the chapters in this timely volume are intended for a nonspecialist audience and will be useful to practitioners in business and government, as well as to students and teachers

The politics of the Asian economic crisis( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 1997, a wave of economic problems swept across Asia turning the vaunted "Asian Economic Miracle" into the "Asian Economic Crisis". The contributors to this text focus on the political causes and implications of the crisis which underlie the economic collapse. The events of 1997-98 involved not just property values, financial flows, portfolio makeup and debt ratios, they argue, but also the power relationships that shaped those economic indicators

Remapping East Asia : the construction of a region( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An overarching ambiguity characterizes East Asia today. The region has at least a century-long history of internal divisiveness, war, and conflict, and it remains the site of several nettlesome territorial disputes. However, a mixture of complex and often competing agents and processes has been knitting together various segments of East Asia. In Remapping East Asia, T. J. Pempel suggests that the region is ripe for cooperation rather than rivalry and that recent "region-building" developments in East Asia have had a substantial cumulative effect on the broader canvas of international politics. This collection is about the people, processes, and institutions behind that region-building. In it, experts on the area take a broad approach to the dynamics and implications of regionalism. Instead of limiting their focus to security matters, they extend their discussions to topics as diverse as the mercurial nature of Japan's leadership role in the region, Southeast Asian business networks, the war on terrorism in Asia, and the political economy of environmental regionalism. Throughout, they show how nation-states, corporations, and problem-specific coalitions have furthered regional cohesion not only by establishing formal institutions, but also by operating informally, semiformally, or even secretly

The economy-security nexus in Northeast Asia by T. J Pempel( )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The dynamics of Northeast Asia have traditionally been considered primarily in military and hard security terms or alternatively along their economic dimensions. This book argues that relations among the states of Northeast Asia are far more comprehensible when the mutually shaping interactions between economics and security are considered simultaneously. It examines these interactions and some of the key empirical questions they pose, the answers to which have important lessons for international relations beyond Northeast Asia. Contributors to this volume analyze how the states of the region define their 'security', and how bilateral relations in hard security issues and economic linkages play out among Japan, China and the two Koreas. Further, the chapters interrogate how different patterns of techno-nationalist development affect regional security ties, and the extent to which closer economic connections enhance or detract from a nation's self-perceived security. The book concludes by discussing scenarios for the future and the conditions that will shape relations between economics and security in the region." --
Security cooperation in Northeast Asia : architecture and beyond by T. J Pempel( )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Defining and conceptualizing Northeast Asia's security complex poses unique quandaries. The security architecture in Northeast Asia to date has been predominately U.S.-dominated bilateral alliances, weak institutional structures and the current Six Party Talks dealing with the North Korean nuclear issue. There has been a distinct lack of desire among regional countries as well as the U.S. to follow in the footsteps of Europe with its robust set of multilateral institutions. However, since the late 1990s, there has been burgeoning interest among regional states towards forming new multilateral institutions as well as reforming and revitalizing existing mechanisms. Much of this effort has been in the economic and political arenas, with the creation of bodies such as the East Asian Summit, but there have also been important initiatives in the security sphere. This book offers detailed examinations about how this potentially tense region of the world is redefining certain longstanding national interests, and shows how this shift is the result of changing power relations, the desire to protect hard-won economic gains, as well as growing trust in new processes designed to foster regional cooperation over regional conflict. Presenting new and timely research on topics that are vital to the security future of one of the world's most important geographical regions, this book will be of great value to students and scholars of Asian politics, regionalism, international politics and security studies

Japan and Asia's contested order : the interplay of security, economics, and identity( )

16 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together up-to-date research from prominent international scholars in a collaborative exploration of the Japan's efforts to shape Asia's rapidly shifting regional order. Pulled between an increasingly inward-looking America whose security support remains critical and a rising and more militarily assertive China with whom Japan retains deep economic interdependence, Japanese leaders are consistently maneuvering to ensure the country's regional interests. Nuclear and missile threats from North Korea and historically problematic relations with South Korea further complicate Japanese endeavors. So too do the shifting winds of Japanese domestic politics, economics and identity. The authors weave these complex threads together to offer a nuanced portrait of both Japan and the region. Scholars, observers of politics, and policymakers will find this a timely and useful collection. T. J. Pempel, with a Ph.D. from Columbia University, is Jack M. Forcey Professor of Political Science in U.C. Berkeley's Department of Political Science which he joined in July 2001. He served as director of the Institute of East Asian Studies from 2002 until 2006. Yul Sohn, with a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in Political Science, is Professor of International Studies in Yonsei University's Graduate School of International Studies. He is also President of the East Asia Institute, a premier foreign policy think-tank in South Korea

Japan in crisis : what will it take for Japan to rise again? by Bong Youngshik( )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is the result of a conference held by the Asan Institute for Policy Studies in November, 2011. Organized in the aftermath of the crisis presented by the triple disaster that struck the Tohoku region of Japan on March 11 of the previous year: an earthquake, a tsunami, and a nuclear meltdown. The conference had as its overarching theme 'Japan in Crisis: What Will It Take for Japan to Rise Again?' Authors began by addressing the question of what it would take for Japan to 'recover' from not only from 3/11 but also more than 20 years of nearly unilateral economic stagnation, political fumbling, and deterioration in the country's regional and global influence. The Asan Institute for Policy Studies is an independent think tank located in Seoul, South Korea, that provides innovative policy solutions and spearheads public discourse on many of the core issues that Korea, East Asia, and the global community face. The goal of the institute is not only to offer policy solutions but also to train experts in public diplomacy and related fields in order to strengthen Korea's capacity to better tackle some of the most pressing problems affecting the country, the region and the world today."--
Political economy of northeast Asian regionalism : political conflict and economic integration by J Park( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Functional integration in the economy has developed sufficiently in Northeast Asia. The problem, identified by this book, lies in the lag or deficiency of institutional integration. The main impediments to such a move come from non-economic factors including political conflict. This study proposes a Northeast Asian version of the regional integration model. A crisis model and a political leadership model are suggested, with political leadership playing a critical role in utilizing crises to advance regional integration. A market-based transition model and a development model are also offered to show how to ease the transition of North Korea and the development of underdeveloped parts of the region." "This book is an objective analysis combining both 'insider' and 'outsider' (most notably US) perspectives of Northeast Asian regionalism. It also usefully applies regional integration theories to the realities of the Northeast Asian situation and presents policy options for regional integration."--Jacket
