East Asia and Latin America: The Unlikely Alliance

MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingConversations
This volume sheds new light on the much-neglected topic of current and potential relations between East Asia and Latin America. The contributors contend that close cooperation between peoples and governments of these two areas is feasible and desirable--and indeed that it could have beneficial effects on the shaping of a new world order in the face of globalization and in the wake of 9/11. In a genuinely comparative set of essays, the book focuses on two broad themes: economic and political connections between East Asia and Latin America, and similarities and differences in developmental paths and public policies. Part I explores economic linkages, emphasizing trade, investment, and patterns of regional integration. Part II compares economic development strategies, reopening arguments about the substance and utility of the so-called Asian model. Part III offers a systematic comparison of currency crises and policy responses in Mexico, Thailand, Korea, and Brazil. Part IV explores the changing roles of the major powers, China, Japan, and the United States. A concluding chapter presents practical suggestions and policy guidelines on ways to strengthen ties between the two regions. By bringing together original work by senior scholars and professional experts from both regions, the book offers an authoritative, comprehensive, and provocative set of perspectives. It will be essential reading for specialists and advanced students in international relations, international economics, foreign policy, economic development, public policy, and East Asian and Latin American studies.… (more)
