About this product
- DescriptionThis insightful book draws upon a wide range of disciplines - political ecomy, geography and international relations - to examine how Asia has returned to its central position in the world ecomy. As in the case of the hosting of the Olympic games, it is cities rather than states which compete, whether as financial centres, logistical hubs or platforms for coordinating international subcontracting. Analysing the historical precedents of the Mediterranean maritime republics, the Baltic Sea Hanseatic League and the South China Sea mercantile kingdoms, the book delineates the way stable ecomic and legal institutions were developed largely beyond the purview of, and at times in conflict with, the State. Discussing the strong link between history and contemporary ecomic situation, The Asian Mediterranean will appeal to academics, including post-graduate students of ecomics, geography, history, regional studies and Asian studies.
