Description

China and East Asia's Post-Crises Community: A Region in Flux, by Wei Liang and Faizullah Khilji, explores how an East Asian community is taking shape as a result of China's emergence as a global economic power and the shocks of the financial crises emanating from the globalized financial system. From a security oriented US-centric regional structure characterized as the hub and spokes system set up after the Second World War, this region is now more nearly an informal economic community, which increasingly appears to be China-centric. This book presents one of the first attempts to weave together different strands of the current discussion to develop a framework for understanding a rapidly evolving East Asia region.show more

Review quote

In a series of empirically rich chapters, Wei Liang and Faizullah Khilji convincingly show how, even despite the absence of a leader and a master plan, an East Asian space formed as a result of the 1997-98 Asian Financial and 2008 Global Economic Crises, Western inertia and policy failings, East Asian successes, the rise of China-centric production networks, national interests, and the demise of traditional security imperatives, which collectively delegitimized conventional dogmas and players, and supported new forms of regional collaboration. -- Jean-Marc F. Blanchard, San Francisco State Universityshow more
