The second edition of this innovative and affordable book integrates environmental and financial sustainability into its distinctive regional approach. By focusing on political economy in its cultural, religious and historical roots, as well as leadership decisions, it spurs critical thinking. Working through the unique development paths of individual countries, the authors foster integrative thinking and a strong sense of realism about both the prospects and challenges of economic development in the rapidly evolving global economy. The book is exceptional in both its theoretical nuance and accessible writing. An Instructors Manual with discussion questions, a test bank, and PowerPoint slides is available online to professors who adopt the text.

Table of Contents

Kaneko Fumiko (1903-1926) wrote this memoir while in prison after being convicted of plotting to assassinate the Japanese emperor. Despite an early life of misery, deprivation, and hardship, she grew up to be a strong and independent young woman. When she moved to Tokyo in 1920, she gravitated to left-wing groups and eventually joined with the Korean nihilist Pak Yeol to form a two-person nihilist organization. Two days after the Great Tokyo Earthquake, in a general wave of anti-leftist and anti-Korean hysteria, the authorities arrested the pair and charged them with high treason. Defiant to the end (she hanged herself in prison on July 23, 1926), Kaneko Fumiko wrote this memoir as an indictment of the society that oppressed her, the family that abused and neglected her, and the imperial system that drove her to her death.
