About this product
- DescriptionIs there a link between the collapse of the Soviet Union, the radical reforms in China and Vietnam, and the current crisis in East Asia? David Lockwood argues that the common factor in each is the crisis of state-controlled ecomies, besieged by the developing forces of globalization. This book examines the collapse of the Soviet Union t as the 'end of history', or the beginning of a 'new world order', but as an illustration of processes that are taking place the world over. The author concludes that it was globalization that brought down the communist system. Globalization continues to threaten state-controlled ecomies - from the remaining 'socialist' state to the NICs of East Asia.
- Author BiographyDavid Lockwood is Associate Professor and Head of History at Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia and the author of books on the Soviet Union and Modern Indian History.
