|Abstract (Document Summary) |
|Asian regionalism is explored from the perspective that regions do not just exist as material objects in the world, but also as |
|social and cognitive constructs that are rooted in political practice. With specific reference toAsia and the financial crisis of|
|1997, the following themes are explored: 1. The effects of the international environment on regions can lead to a relatively open |
|(as in the 1990s) or closed (as in the 1930s) type of regionalism. 2. Regions can be peaceful and rich, or war-prone and poor. 3. |
|Regions can experience processes of enlargement and set standards for a growing number ofpolities (as is true of the North |
|Atlantic Treaty Organization and the European Union), or suffer from retraction (as appears possible for the Association of |
|Southeast Asian Nations and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation in the wake of the Asian financial crisis). |

|question some conventional categories of analysis. The world-wide victory of capitalism blurs stark distinctions between |
|capitalism and socialism, and democracy and authoritarianism. Instead, it placesnational political economies in a regional |
|context that is shaped by a variety of processes. |
|It is relatively easy to state what a world of regions is not: a new world order, an end of history, or a clash of civilisations. |
|Each of these generalisations is easily refuted, for example, by the surge in...
