Globalization and Change in Asia

Globalization and Change in AsiaEdited by Dennis A. Rondinelli and John M. Heffron
2007

In this book, the first in a series, the authors seek to understand the dynamics of change through which governments, social organizations, and the private sector are adjusting to rapidly shifting global trends. The research in the book – a compilation of the work of eleven scholars, including the editors – differentiates it from work that has focused on arguments over the merits or dangers of globalization, as well as from studies that have examined globalization as a phenomenological issue. Instead, Globalization in Asia explores how adjustments to globalization in Asia have conditioned international trends in the region, suggesting a model of balanced human development that sets the region apart from, and that can serve as an example for, other regions of the world.
