It is the most dynamic and productive region in the developing world, the result of an economic explosion fuelled by the industrial activity of the four little tigers of Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan. Pacific Asia is where the green revolution began, where there are more women in factory work than anywhere else- the region is also the most predominantly socialist in the Third World.

Pacific Asia reviews the historical development of the region and considers its present position in a global context. General issues - resources, urbanization, ethnicity, population, gender, rural development and industrialization - common to all the countries of the region - are set in their local context. The author argues that these issues must be examined before successful policy for the future can be determined.
