Summary

Resource interdependence has driven economic integration in the Asia-Pacific. Through trade and investment ties, Northeast Asian steel industries have developed global production networks with mining industries on the Pacific Rim for the supply of steelmaking raw materials. But by spanning multiple national spaces, these production networks unite many national economies while belonging exclusively to none. Who, therefore, is in control? Jeffrey D. Wilson examines how states and firms coordinate their activities to govern global production in the Asia-Pacific steel industry.

Table of Contents

"This volume is a major contribution to our understanding of the political-economy of the Asia-Pacific generally and of the region's steel industry in particular. Theoretically innovative and empirically rich, this is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the pivotal role of production networks in shaping this dynamic region." - Mark Beeson, Winthrop Professor in Political Science and International Relations, The University of Western Australia, Crawley, Australia
