Description: This multi-volume set focuses on a key region of the world which contains fourof the biggest emerging economies, a large number of highly dynamic small- andmedium-sized emerging economies, and one of the leading advanced industrialcountries. It is a region which contains some of the biggest hydrocarbon andmineral deposits in the world, and some of the most energy- and metal-hungryeconomies in the world. With half the world's population, it is one of the mostdynamic regions of the globe in terms of population movement, providing a keyfocus of foreign investment, both inwards and outwards, with a high degree oftechnological dynamism. The region plays a central role in the industrial supplynetworks of the globe.In four volumes, focusing on, respectively, foreigninvestment, innovation, energy and migration, the set focuses on each of themain elements in the production system in turn — capital, innovation, rawmaterials and labour. Volume 1 studies patterns of interchange of financial anddirect investment within the region, focusing on governance, the development ofsupply chains, and technology transfer. In Volume 2, the technology themebecomes dominant, with a special focus on digital technology. It includestechnical issues like mobile communications standardisation, developmentaldimensions, including the role of clusters and science parks, and politicaleconomy issues like the rise of techno-nationalism. Volume 3 turns to energyissues — not just issues of supply and demand, but also key problems ofclimate change, security and sustainability across the Eurasian and Asianlandmass. Volume 4 presents the human dimension, looking at people in movement,as workers, citizens, men, women, or colonisers. Among the key issues discussedare the migration from country to town in China, the ‘greying’ of countrieslike Japan, the effect of war on migration, marriage migration, humantrafficking and the depopulation of the Russian Far East.The set is a must-havefor anyone keen to understand the region whose manufacturing core can bedescribed, without exaggeration, as the ‘workshop of the world’ of thetwenty-first century.
