Pacific-Asia and the Future of the World-System

Synopsis

Despite consensus that we are at the dawn of a new era--the Age of the Pacific--there are questions regarding the future directions of an impending Pacific Century. This contributed volume considers those questions from a world-historical perspective. The initial sections of the work analyze changing patterns of the relational networks along Asia's Pacific parimeters as integral parts of the ongoing restructuring of the capitalist world-economy, while Part III examines the individual trajectories of two Asian giants--India and China. The final section explores how changes in the patterning of production processes have contoured the nature of antisystemic movements in the 1980s.
