The emergence of a new regional economic architecture in Northeast Asia raises a number of important political economic implications. This book investigates the rationale, structure and form of this development. It critically examines the evolution of the political economy of Northeast Asian regionalism. This book is a combination of strong pre-existing and working knowledge of the political economies of three countries: China, Japan and Korea. Due to the exploratory, theory-building nature of the research, and interviews with key informants combined with critical published and unpublished secondary data used, Political Economy of New Regionalism in Northeast Asia is an original work and makes substantial contribution towards understanding the rapidly changing global political economic architecture.show more
