Pacific-Asian Economic Policies And Regional Interdependence
Edited by Robert A. Scalapino and others
Institute of East Asian Studies, University of California, 1989, 352 pp.

This volume contains a number of valuable essays on the growing regional economic interdependence in the Pacific. There is a particularly useful essay by Robert Campbell on Soviet economic policy in the Pacific that concludes that there is little basis for rapidly expanding economic activity in the Soviet Far East or in Soviet trade with Asia. Russia's natural economic partner, he concludes, is Western Europe.
