No part of the world has been affected more by globalization in recent decades than Southeast Asia. This has led to many observers to believe that the region's present experience with globalization is at once unprecedented, inevitable, and irreversible.

Professor Peter A. Coclanis challenges such beliefs, and, in so doing, provides a history of globalization in South East Asia over the past two millennia. Employing Stephen Jay Gould's famous temporal metaphors - time's arrow and time's cycle - Coclanis traces the trajectory of globalization, arguing that globalization has ebbed and flowed in the region over the centuries, that globalization is best viewed as a process rather than a permanent condition, and that its effects have differed considerably across space and over time.

*Book is still wrapped in its plastic - as good as new.


As new (AN): I'm hardly noticeably used and could be new. Some of my pages could be yellowed due to age but I am otherwise clean and flawless.
