Emerging Capitalism in Central Europe and Southeast Asia. A Comparison of Political Economies, by François Bafoil
Palgrave Macmillan, September 2014, 256 p.
The book examines the emergence of different forms of capitalism in Central-Eastern states in Europe and Mekong states within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). All of them (but Thailand) have historically disappeared from the regional maps for long periods of time due to colonial or imperial rule. Most of them were previously members of a soviet-type economy, and they all joined ASEAN or the European Union in the 1990s or in the 2000s. These states are characterized by a strong urge toward feelings of national sovereignty due to their experiences with colonialism and imperialism.
The transformations at play in the contemporary international system are not merely political, they also have echoes in academic debates. Indeed the challenge to the West caused by the rise of emerging powers as well the search for new forms of global governance. By highlighting these double transformations at play in the contemporary world, Amitav Acharya seeks to encourage a movement beyond a Western centrism in the study of international relations and contribute to the development of an international relations discipline which will be at the same time more pluralist and more globally encompassing.
