Comparing Asian Politics presents an invaluable comparative examination of politics and government in three Asian nations; India, China, and Japan. The author elucidates the links between politics and each nation's distinctive cultural and historical contexts and demonstrates the intermingling and grafting of Asian traditions with the influence of Western values and institutions. National identity, political cohesion, and socioeconomic change emerge as central to how politics has developed in each nation-state. Including new focus boxes on political and social issues and other important countries in Asia, this third edition provides insight into topics such as the significance of constitutions in the political process; the parliamentary system in Asia; the regionalization of politics and the importance of levels of government; the decay of one-party rule; the links between development and democratization; and the impact of globalization. This essential book not only illuminates the politics of India, China, and Japan in relation to one another, it also suggests to readers how their own experience of politics can be informed by understanding the politics and government of these three Asian nations.

Chinese and Indian Strategic Behavior

Growing Power and Alarm

Author: George J. Gilboy,Eric Heginbotham

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

This book offers an empirical comparison of Chinese and Indian international strategic behavior. It is the first study of its kind, filling an important gap in the literature on rising Indian and Chinese power and American interests in Asia. The book creates a framework for the systematic and objective assessment of Chinese and Indian strategic behavior in four areas: (1) strategic culture; (2) foreign policy and use of force; (3) military modernization (including defense spending, military doctrine and force modernization); and (4) economic strategies (including international trade and energy competition). The utility of democratic peace theory in predicting Chinese and Indian behavior is also examined. The findings challenge many assumptions underpinning Western expectations of China and India.

Globalization and Development in East Asia

Author: Jan Nederveen Pieterse

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 0415807034

Category: Political Science

East Asia is widely regarded as the main "winner" in contemporary globalization, unscathed by the economic crisis of 2008, with its leading new industrializing nations and emerging economies. While 20th-century globalization was mainly led by the West, the 21st century is ushering in different dynamics. The re-emergence of Asia involves alternative visions of the world and different perspectives on globalization. This volume seeks to address these dimensions, turning to local reflexivities, notably in South Korea and China, to explore the key debates in sociology and political economy within East Asia rather than from an outside view.

Economic Reform in Asia

China, India, and Japan

Author: Sara Hsu

Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing

ISBN: 1784711543

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 240

View: 5525

Economic Reform in Asia compares and analyzes the reform and development patterns of China, India, and Japan from both historical and developmental perspectives. Sara Hsu specifically focuses on China’s reform and opening-up in 1979, India’s accelerated liberalization in 1991, and the outset of the Meiji Restoration in Japan in 1878. This detailed overview of growth patterns in Asia’s largest economies is invaluable, especially in its determination to understand which development policies work, what role institutions play in development, and what issues may arise during said development. The book first provides an overview of the countries’ development trajectories and introduces the theoretical constructs associated with them. The text focuses on key aspects of development for comparison, such as poverty and inequality, rural to urban migration, human capital, and the impact of development on the environment, trade, and economic future of these three countries. The relative success of reforms and their political and economic effects are also discussed. This comprehensive book will be of interest to students, as it provides an impressive overview of three Asian countries’ development, as well as for scholars in the field who are looking for a thoughtful and complex discussion of reform from different perspectives.

India and China in the Emerging Dynamics of East Asia

Though considerable research literature is now available on China–India relations, most of it still follows a conventional narrative, viewing the relationship through the narrow conflictual prism limited to South Asia than in the new, larger perspective, especially in the context of emerging East Asian dynamics. This book offers comprehensive analyses of some of these issues in papers addressing two broad themes. One, significant trends in the relationship between China and India on a range of issues, including economic development models, their military strategies, and the boundary dispute; and two, how others are responding to the rise of India and China and their impact on East Asia. Together, the chapters constitute a comprehensive study on both China–India relations and their concurrent rise, including a variety of perspectives and methodologies. Written by some of the top experts on the subject from India, China, Japan, and Taiwan and covering a broad range of issues, the book will generate considerable interest in understanding this relatively neglected dimension of today’s East Asia.

Der Selbstmord Europas

Immigration, Identität, Islam

Sinkende Geburtenraten, unkontrollierte Masseneinwanderung und eine lange Tradition des verinnerlichten Misstrauens: Europa scheint unfähig zu sein, seine Interessen zu verteidigen. Douglas Murray, gefeierter Autor, sieht in seinem neuen Bestseller Europa gar an der Schwelle zum Freitod – zumindest scheinen sich seine politischen Führer für den Selbstmord entschieden zu haben. Doch warum haben die europäischen Regierungen einen Prozess angestoßen, wohl wissend, dass sie dessen Folgen weder absehen können noch im Griff haben? Warum laden sie Tausende von muslimischen Einwanderern ein, nach Europa zu kommen, wenn die Bevölkerung diese mit jedem Jahr stärker ablehnt? Sehen die Regierungen nicht, dass ihre Entscheidungen nicht nur die Bevölkerung ihrer Länder auseinandertreiben, sondern letztlich auch Europa zerreißen werden? Oder sind sie so sehr von ihrer Vision eines neuen europäischen Menschen, eines neuen Europas und der arroganten Überzeugung von deren Machbarkeit geblendet? Der Selbstmord Europas ist kein spontan entstandenes Pamphlet einer vagen Befindlichkeit. Akribisch hat Douglas Murray die Einwanderung aus Afrika und dem Nahen Osten nach Europa recherchiert und ihre Anfänge, ihre Entwicklung sowie die gesellschaftlichen Folgen über mehrere Jahrzehnte ebenso studiert wie ihre Einmündung in den alltäglich werdenden Terrorismus. Eine beeindruckende und erschütternde Analyse der Zeit, in der wir leben, sowie der Zustände, auf die wir zusteuern.

The U. S. , Japan, and Asia in International Politics

Author: Andrew Hanami

Publisher: Cognella Academic Publishing

ISBN: 9781609273170

Category: History

Page: 292

View: 2495

The United States needs to understand each of the many Asian states in detail: while there are similarities, they all have situations that are difficult to compare. "The U.S., Japan, and Asia in International Politics" focuses on U.S. interests in Asia in its broadest contours from Japan, China, and the Koreas in the east; a discussion of India in the south; and also to Afghanistan and Pakistan in the west. This book also treats Russia as an Asia Pacific power. Author Andrew K. Hanami examines the economic, financial, trade, and security issue differences in the region. Washington is rushing to find a balance in its foreign policy goals among the differing Asia Pacific states through such measures as: erecting trade corridors, enacting bilateral arrangements, deploying troops, and pursuing a cycle of encirclement and openness as the administration searches for stability and prosperity. This text explores if U.S. policy is improving on the problems found in a suddenly larger Asia, or in some way compounding them. Andrew K. Hanami received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1987. He taught at the School of International Studies, Stockton, California from 1987 1990, and now teaches in the International Relations Department at San Francisco State University. He has made research trips to China, Japan, Russia, and England.

Challenges to Effective Multilateralism

Comparing Asian and European Experiences

Author: Bates Gill

Publisher: DIANE Publishing

ISBN: 1437911714

Category:

Page: 19

View: 4355

The contrast between Europe¿s and Asia¿s experiences with regional integration and institution-building raises numerous questions about the changing nature of economic integration and multilateral cooperation in the 21st century. Similarities in these trends raise questions about the value of comparing the experiences of Asia and Europe. To date little serious discussion and research about such a comparison has occurred, and dialogue between Asian and EU experts has been equally elusive. The intention of this conference was to fill the gap in the literature, catalyze a more sustained dialogue, and generate policy-relevant recommendations for U.S. policymakers.

Von der Polizei nach Namen und Wohnort gefragt, will er beides nicht preisgeben, um die Christen in seiner Hauskirche und in seinem Heimatland China nicht zu gefährden. Er antwortet: "Ich bin ein Mann des Himmels. Ich wohne im Evangeliumsdorf." So kommt Bruder Yun zu seinem Spitznamen "Heavenly Man". Ein Leben wie im Abenteuerroman. Oder besser: wie eine neue Version der Apostelgeschichte. Mit 16 zum Glauben gekommen. Erhält von Gott Aufträge, auch in Träumen und Visionen. Mehrfach verhaftet, aber auf wundersame Weise entkommen. Schließlich doch Gefängnis und schwerste Folterungen. Durch Gottes Gnade standhaft geblieben. Er bleibt ein Zeuge Gottes. Durch ihn und zahllose andere Christen breitet sich das Evangelium in China wie in riesigen Wellen aus. Mit seinem Buch will er Gottes Taten bezeugen und die Christen im Westen aufrütteln. Damit in ihnen die Liebe zu Gott und den Menschen wieder stark wird.

Die Idee der Gerechtigkeit

Drei Kinder streiten darüber, wem von ihnen eine Flöte gehören sollte. Das erste Kind hat Musikunterricht gehabt und kann als einziges Flöte spielen. Das zweite ist arm und besitzt keinerlei anderes Spielzeug. Das dritte Kind hat die Flöte mit viel Ausdauer selbst angefertigt. Mit diesem Gleichnis eröffnet Amartya Sen, einer der wichtigsten Denker unserer Zeit, sein Buch über die Idee der Gerechtigkeit. Es ist John Rawls gewidmet und grenzt sich doch von der wirkungsmächtigsten Gerechtigkeitstheorie des 20. Jahrhunderts ab. Wer eine weitere abstrakte Diskussion der institutionellen Grundlagen einer gerechten Gesellschaft erwartet, der wird enttäuscht sein. Wer sich hingegen darüber wundert, was diese Theorien eigentlich zur Bekämpfung real existierender Ungerechtigkeiten beitragen, der wird großen Gewinn daraus ziehen. Sen nämlich stellt die Plausibilität solcher Anstrengungen der reinen Vernunft in Frage. Seine Theorie der Gerechtigkeit ist weniger an der Ausformulierung einer ethisch perfekten Gesellschaft interessiert als an Argumenten, deren Maßstab die konkrete Überwindung von Ungerechtigkeit ist. Sen eröffnet Perspektiven, die dem westlichen Denken meist fehlen. Seine Kenntnis der hinduistischen, buddhistischen und islamischen Kultur ist wundervoll eingewoben in das Buch und prägt den ganzen Charakter seines Philosophierens. Die Vernunft sucht die Wahrheit, wo immer sie sich finden lässt - und wie der Autor dieses außergewöhnlichen Werkes entdeckt sie auf ihrer weiten Reise viele gangbare Wege zu einer gerechteren Welt.
