Globalization and Economic Nationalism in Asia

Mark Selden

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides a historical and regional backdrop to the interplay of economic and geopolitical nationalism and regionalism in contemporary East Asia. A brief survey of East Asia from the sixteenth to the late twentieth century covering the Sinocentric tributary trade system, colonial rule, world wars, and the rise of revolutions and nationalism sets the stage for the analysis of the resurgence of contemporary East Asia and China and the changing face of regional geopolitics and political economy. The central question he asks is how the post-1970s resurgence and transformation of East Asia can be conceptualized in relation to three major forces: economic and geopolitical nationalism, regionalism, and globalism? The East Asian regional order continues to be driven by competitive nationalisms and the role of the US, which is simultaneously framed by China’s rise as a dominant regional and international economic power.

Keywords:   East Asian regionalism, nationalism, geopolitics, Chinese resurgence, Sinocentric tributary trade
