New Regionalisms in the Global Political Economy: Theories and Cases, with S. Breslin, B. Rosamond and N. Philips (London, Routledge, 2002) 257 pages

Synopsis

Regional economic and political integration is not a new phenomenon. The marked growth of regionalism and regionalisation however, has been one of the most striking features of the global political economy in recent years. This edited book features a distinguished list of international contributors who provide a systematic and stimulating 'state of the art' discussion on regionalism and key issues such as sovereignty, autonomy, identity and the long-term effects of global financial crises.
