This collection, edited by two of the world's leading experts on Asian economies, provides an invaluable reference resource by collecting together the major articles and essays on the region. It combines articles on China, ASEAN economies and the four NICs (Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong) with material dealing with key issues for the region as a whole.
It is now widely accepted that the Asian Pacific Rim is by far the world's most dynamic economic growth region and is set to lead the world in economic growth in the new century. However, the causes and consequences of this growth are much less widely understood. This set will be indispensable for anyone who needs to understand one of the major forces which is reshaping the global economy.
