About the Book

Following the financial crisis at the end of the twentieth century, regionalisms in the global political economy have evolved in a number of ways. This informative book brings together the leading scholars in the field to provide cutting edge analyses of contemporary regions and regionalist projects.

Providing an innovative integration of theoretical issues with sophisticated analyses of a wide range of international case studies, the chapters systematically consider the relationship between globalization, financial crisis, and regional projects. In combination, the contributions to this volume provide the widest possible base within the literature for a truly comparative study of contemporary regionalism.

About the Series

Warwick Studies in Globalisation

What is globalisation and does it matter? How can we measure it? What are its policy implications? The Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation at the University of Warwick is an international site for the study of key questions such as these in the theory and practice of globalisation and regionalisation. Its agenda is avowedly interdisciplinary. The work of the Centre will be showcased in this new series.

This series comprises two strands:

Warwick Studies in Globalisation addresses the needs of students and teachers, and the titles will be published in hardback and paperback.

Routledge/Warwick Studies in Globalisation is a forum for innovative new research intended for a high-level specialist readership, and the titles will be available in hardback only.
