New regionalism and globalization have been prominent themes in academic and political debates since the beginning of the 1990s. Despite the considerable amount of scholarly attention that the new regionalism has received in recent years, its full empirical and theoretical potential has yet to be fully investigated. This illuminating study provides an overview of new avenues in theorizing regionalism and proposes a consolidated framework for analysis and comparison. Offering a comparative historical perspective of European and Southeast Asian regionalism, it presents new and imaginative insights into the theory and practice of regionalism and the links between regional developments, globalization and international order.


'In a globalizing world the role of regional formations is growing and the European Union is no longer the only model. Through…a successful marriage of theory and historical detail, [this] well-written, accessible, insightful and thought provoking study throws valuable light on these complex but crucial processes.' Anne Stevens, Aston University, UK '[Wunderlich] presents a much needed conceptual account of the regionalization of global politics in its temporal and spatial contexts…relevant to students and practitioners of world affairs alike…invaluable for the purposes of teaching, theorizing and grasping the turbulent dynamics of global politics.'
