This book provides a unique insight into the development of economic regionalization, with special reference to the Asia-Pacific. It presents international globalization strategies from a historical perspective and then analyses the effects on the development of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC). Focusing on APEC itself, the author provides a detailed investigation into its organization and agenda, and thorough personal interviews with some of the most influential people who have worked for APEC. This work contributes uniquely to our understanding and insight of economic regionalization in this area through detailed interviews with former members of this group. It will be especially useful to policy makers as well as scholars of Asian studies, international economics, globalization, and trade.
