Politics and Economics in the Russian Far East: Changing Ties with Asia-Pacific


The Cold War is now over and the new Russia is attempting to turn itself into a democratic society with a market economy and forge stable and peaceful relations with the Asia Pacific.

Between Russia and the Asia Pacific addresses the key issue of what the Russian far east and its Northeast Asian neighbors can do to further closer economic and co-operative relationships. The author covers the question of to what extent the state should intervene to stimulate economic growth in the Russian far east, and examines options for a more laissez-faire approach. This book will be essential reading for all those wishing to obtain a deeper understanding of the complexity of the issues involved in the development of co-operative relationships between Russia and its Asia-Pacific neighbors.
