This book analyzes the overall effect of American primacy on social
and political conflicts in Asia, discussing how the post-Cold War
American agenda does not promote democratization in the region, in
contradiction to one of the major proclaimed aims of the proponents
of the Pax Americana. This team of renowned scholars argue that the
US agenda can strengthen anti-democratic impulses in Asian
societies, exacerbating and complicating existing domestic
conflicts and struggles. Empire and Neoliberalism in Asia also
examines how the requirements of the War on Terror intersect with,
and reinforce, those of transnationalized sections of American
capital. Drawing on country case studies, this multidisciplinary
book looks at the ramifications of the American Empire for the
Asian region and will appeal to anyone interested in Asian
politics, international relations, political economy, development
studies and sociology.
