Pacific Century
documentary series out of date, cannot be updated
because of copyright issues; nothing on Asian financial crisis,
Japan’s economic slump, emerging East Asian regionalism &
increasing intra-Asian trade
Although called “Pacific” Century, primary focus was on land-based
economics, politics, geography, societies, without considering what
held them together, leading to a comparative politics & economics
approach; separate & independent units strung together.
Standard courses using Pacific Century text & videos had reified
“Asia-Pacific” into a thing rather than viewing it as an ongoing
process of migration, trade, economic, cultural & educational
exchange. Skeptics doubted that this thing, Asia-Pacific, really
existed, claimed it was only an ideological construct
Institutional framework, APEC, is said to be in trouble, idea of Asia-
Pacific community threatened by East Asian regionalism; APEC
badly divided during the 1997 Asian financial crisis, enthusiasm &
optimism slowed down
However, processes of integration across the Asia-Pacific have
intensified even without a framework to manage them
