About this title


Observing the dramatic shift in world politics since the end of the Cold War, Peter J. Katzenstein argues that regions have become critical to contemporary world politics. This view is in stark contrast to those who focus on the purportedly stubborn persistence of the nation-state or the inevitable march of globalization. In detailed studies of technology and foreign investment, domestic and international security, and cultural diplomacy and popular culture, Katzenstein examines the changing regional dynamics of Europe and Asia, which are linked to the United States through Germany and Japan. Regions, Katzenstein contends, are interacting closely with an American imperium that combines territorial and non-territorial powers.

From the Inside Flap:

"In its breadth, erudition, and insightfulness this is a truly monumental work in political science (not merely international relations). Peter J. Katzenstein's carefully crafted comparative framework builds on the experiences of Germany and Japan--in Western Europe and Asia respectively--to establish that regional institutions have important effects, over and beyond the effects of globalization and internationalization. Katzenstein's favored explanation is that formal--Weberian--domestic arrangements in Germany versus informal ones in Japan shape regional politics in their respective images. The evidence for the workings of Japanese and German capitalism and culture in their respective regions is robust, convincing, comprehensive, and skillfully deployed."—Etel Solingen, University of California, Irvine
