As the end of the century approaches, the Asian-Pacific region is becoming the most important economic area in the world. Pekka Korhonen examines the nature of Japan's economic rise since World War II, and its relations with other countries in the Pacific area. This in turn led to an optimistic world outlook for Japan, in which military tension was wiped away in the light of sustained economic growth and the formation of an inter-dependent structure for Asian-Pacific countries.
Main Description
As the end of the century approaches, the Asian-Pacific region is becoming the most important economic area in the world. Pekka Korhonen examines the nature of Japan's economic rise since World War II and demonstrates how its increased levels of economic and political cooperation with the other nations in the Pacific are a result of that economic prowess. This, in turn, has led to an optimistic world outlook for Japan, in which political and military tensions could be wiped away as a result of sustained regional economic growth and the formation of an interdependent structure for Asian-Pacific countries. With the so-called Pacific century nearly upon us, this highly original work will be of great interest to all those engaged in the study of Pacific economic growth and integration.
