Energy, Trade and Finance in Asia

A Political and Economic Analysis


Author: Justin Dargin, Former Associate, The Dubai Initiative

Ordering Information for this publication

Belfer Center Programs or Projects: Dubai Initiative


To be published late 2011, this study offers a vital reappraisal of the trade relationship between north-east Asia and the Gulf. Writing from a non-western standpoint, Dargin and Lim make a compelling case for how these regions became economically integrated in the wake of the oil crisis. The historical role of India in connecting these regions is examined in-depth, whilst the economic modernization of China and Japan is also stressed.

With its emphasis on strategy, this book provides important information that can be used in policy-making for the future, whilst the expert analysis of twentieth-century economic history makes it an essential research tool for scholars working in this area.
