9780813346670: Pacific Century: The Emergence of Modern Pacific Asia

The Asia-Pacific region is rapidly emerging as the global economic and political powerhouse of the twenty-first century. Looking at both Southeast and East Asia, this richly illustrated volume stresses broad, cross-cutting themes of regional history, with an emphasis on the interactions between cultures and nations. In this updated fourth edition, Pacific Century provides a significantly revised introduction, which places the contemporary rise of China within the context of the political, cultural and economic evolution of the region since ancient times. The text then considers more recent developments in their historical context, balancing national and international factors underlying Asia-Pacific economic growth and political change.

About the Author:

Mark Borthwick is director of the United States Asia Pacific Council at the East-West Center in Washington, DC, and has served on staff of the subcommittee of Asian and Pacific Affairs in the US House of Representatives.

Review:

"A uniquely sophisticated yet very accessible and complete review of the Asian ascendancy, spanning from ancient times to today, and enriched with bountiful commentaries by renowned specialists, Pacific Century beautifully interweaves national histories with complex regional and global trends, intelligently balancing explanations of Asia's astounding successes with honest recognition of the region's darker moments.”
Richard Feinberg, Professor, University of California, San Diego, and former senior director of the National Security Council

"A powerful, highly recommended analysis of Asian culture that does more than provide just another history: it connects Asian experiences and trends to its effects on the rest of the world."
The Midwest Book Review
