Pacific Trade: Investments And Politics

By Gavin Boyd
St. Martin's, 1989
195 pp. $39.95

After a dense analysis of the conflicting governmental and private economic forces at play in the Pacific, Professor Boyd concludes that "regional cooperation that develops pragmatically and experimentally will . . . tend to fail." Nevertheless, he is a strong champion of creating a Pacific Community through complex activities that begin with the planning and building of institutions by private elites in all countries. Among the major objectives is putting some restraints on the way power is used by the governments and corporations of the United States and Japan. He assigns an important part for the European Community to play in a lengthy process that certainly looks as if it would have to be experimental and pragmatic.
