Governance in the Asia-Pacific

By Richard Maidment; David Goldblatt et al. | Go to book overview

Series preface

The five volumes in this series are part of a new Open University course, Pacific Studies, which has been produced within the Faculty of Social Sciences. The appearance of Pacific Studies is due to the generous and enthusiastic support the course has received from the University and in particular from colleagues within the Faculty of Social Sciences. The support has been especially remarkable given that this course has ventured into relatively uncharted scholarly waters.

Michael Dawson played an especially important role in the production of The Asia-Pacific Profile and his calm and genial presence was valued as always. Jeremy Cooper and Eleanor Morris of the BBC were responsible for the excellent audio-visual component of Pacific Studies. Anne Carson, the Course Manager of Pacific Studies, was consistently cheerful and helpful. All of the volumes in this series have been greatly improved by the editorial craftsmanship of Stephen Clift, Tom Hunter and Kate Hunter, who have been under great pressure throughout the production of this course, but nevertheless delivered work of real quality. The striking cover designs of Richard Hoyle and Jonathan Davies speak for themselves and the artwork of Ray Munns in all five volumes has been most impressive. Paul Smith, whose recent retirement from the University will leave a very real gap, made his usual remarkable contribution in providing unusual and
