Asean And East Asian International Relations


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Academic and accepted orthodoxy maintains that Southeast Asia, and Asia generally, is evolving into a distinctive East Asian regional order. This book questions this claim and reveals instead uncertainty and incoherence at the heart of ASEAN, the region s foremost institution. The authors provide a systematic critique of ASEAN s evolution and institutional development, as well as a unified understanding of the international relations and political economy of ASEAN and the Asia Pacific. It is the first study to provide a sceptical analysis of international relations orthodoxies regarding regionalization and institutionalism, and is based on wide-ranging and rigorous research. Students of international relations, the Asia Pacific, Southeast Asia, regional studies, international history and security and defence studies will find this book of great interest, as will scholars, policy makers and economic forecasters with an interest in long-term Asia Pacific trends.

Governing The World


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The story of global cooperation between nations and peoples is a tale of dreamers goading us to find common cause in remedying humanity’s worst problems. But international institutions have also provided a tool for the powers that be to advance their own interests and stamp their imprint on the world. Mark Mazower’s Governing the World tells the epic story of that inevitable and irresolvable tension—the unstable and often surprising alchemy between ideas and power. From the beginning, the willingness of national leaders to cooperate has been spurred by crisis: the book opens in 1815, amid the rubble of the Napoleonic Empire, as the Concert of Europe was assembled with an avowed mission to prevent any single power from dominating the continent and to stamp out revolutionary agitation before it could lead to war. But if the Concert was a response to Napoleon, internationalism was a response to the Concert, and as courts and monarchs disintegrated they were replaced by revolutionaries and bureaucrats. 19th century internationalists included bomb-throwing anarchists and the secret policemen who fought them, Marxist revolutionaries and respectable free marketeers. But they all embraced nationalism, the age’s most powerful transformative political creed, and assumed that nationalism and internationalism would go hand in hand. The wars of the twentieth century saw the birth of institutions that enshrined many of those ideals in durable structures of authority, most notably the League of Nations in World War I and the United Nations after World War II. Throughout this history, we see that international institutions are only as strong as the great powers of the moment allow them to be. The League was intended to prop up the British empire. With Washington taking over world leadership from Whitehall, the United Nations became a useful extension of American power. But as Mazower shows us, from the late 1960s on, America lost control over the dialogue and the rise of the independent Third World saw a marked shift away from the United Nations and toward more pliable tools such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. From the 1990s to 2007, Governing the World centers on a new regime of global coordination built upon economic rule-making by central bankers and finance ministers, a regime in which the interests of citizens and workers are trumped by the iron logic of markets. Now, the era of Western dominance of international life is fast coming to an end and a new multi-centered global balance of forces is emerging. We are living in a time of extreme confusion about the purpose and durability of our international institutions. History is not prophecy, but Mark Mazower shows us why the current dialectic between ideals and power politics in the international arena is just another stage in an epic two-hundred-year story.

Man And God


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

My objective in writing that has been recorded thus far has been to discover the root cause of the current conflict between western and Middle Eastern factions, a confrontation which has been labeled a struggle for freedom against terrorism. Such a discovery may enable us to identify a solution hopefully permanent for the seemingly futile battle we are facing. In making this attempt, questions have been raised. Among them, foremost, have deceptive foreign policies of the West led to a humiliation of people of the Middle East? Or has the conviction of certain radical Islamists like Al Qaeda that they must kill their adversaries, driven this struggle? Indeed, is all that has transpired the result of one basic cause, or are several factors at work in extending the bitterness of the situation? Basically, the exploration into answers for these questions has been to study the history and philosophy of contending forces from the standpoint of their religious principles as they are understood by the masses, as well as the intellectuals. A second question that we have attempted to consider: is the character of God, the Creator, of this universe with its countless planets like that of a king, or of a president, or of a corporation CEO, who attempts to maintain dominance of His Creation through the endless activities of fanatical devotees, such as Hezbollah, and Fedahye (to sacrifice), which may be considered to be backstair operatives? A third consideration: If not for the gigantic oil resources of the Middle East, would we be participating in this grievous present war? A fourth quandary: Had not Palestine been a colony of the British government following the first World War, would the current nation of Israel actually exist in the present location? A fifth question: Is it possible for the West to enjoy the benefits of Middle Eastern oil without utilizing the oppressive techniques of colonization, deceitful manipulation, or war? And finally, a sixth query: Are the foreign political strategies of the Western Powers really acceptable to its people: the citizens of the USA, or Europe, and of the rest of the world? And may I repeat? In this writing there is no attempt to cast disrespect or to judge anyone...or any group or country. Rather, this book is written with the intention of providing unbiased information to those who choose to peruse it. All those of us who can find no justification in the pursuit of actions that result in the killing of innocent human beings, be they military or civilian, in the name of God or for the achievement of freedom and human rights, will find it interesting to deal carefully with the considerations of this text as we seek to explain the net effect of our current dilemma. It is in keeping with the solemnity of this quest that you are invited to share this wresting of the soul with us.
