"I believe that this edited book is a timely contribution to the discussion on globalization within the Asia and Pacific Region. Its focus on the cross-border challenges of migration, disease, trade, water, and human trafficking provides a comprehensive argument for governments, civil societies, and even the private sector to contribute solving a crop of new cross-border challenges. What makes this volume compelling is its link to the structures of governance through which these players can play a useful role."
—James H. Spencer, Associate Professor, Urban Planning / Political Science University of Hawai'i at Manoa
"Despite many predictions to the contrary, the countries of Asia are becoming ever more cooperative as their interdependence increases. Contributors to this timely volume provide in-depth analyses of the formal and informal mechanisms of Asian governance that are now dealing with a diversity of cross-border problems: migration, infectious disease, water management, trade and human trafficking. The book will be a welcome and insightful read for anyone interested in how globalization is actually playing out across Asia."
—T.J. Pempel, Professor, Department of Political Science, University of California, Berkeley
