China, East Asia and the Global Economy by Takeshi Hamashita

Book Description

Takeshi Hamashita, arguably Asia's premier historian of the longue duree, has been instrumental in opening a new field of inquiry in Chinese, East Asian and world historical research. Engaging modernization, Marxist and world system approaches, his wide-ranging redefinition of the evolving relationships between the East Asia regional system and the world economy from the sixteenth century to the present has sent ripples throughout Asian and international scholarship. His research has led him to reconceptualize the position of China first in the context of an East Asian regional order and subsequently within the framework of a wider Euro-American-Asian trade and financial order that was long gestating within, and indeed contributing to the shape of, the world market. This book presents a selection of essays from Takeshi Hamashita's oeuvre on Asian trade to introduce this important historian's work to the English speaking reader. It examines the many critical issues surrounding China and East Asia's incorporation to the world economy, including: * Maritime perspectives on China, Asia and the world economy * Intra-Asian trade * Chinese state finance and the tributary trade system * Banking and finance * Maritime customs.

Resurgence of East Asia by Takeshi Hamashita Resurgence of East Asia, Paperback (June 2003)

The East Asian expansion since the 1960s stands out as a global power shift with few historical precedents. This text examines the rise of the region as one of the world's economic power centres from three temporal perspectives: 500 years, 150 years and 50 years, each providing a vantage point against which to assess contemporary developments.
