Remapping East Asia: The Construction of a Region (Cornell Studies in Political Economy)

Posted on Updated on

06“This superb bunch of essays shows what sort of interaction of East Asian countries has been evolving in subtle yet profound ways. By examining an extensive set of issues, the authors persuasively report that East Asia is a bit more ripe for cooperation than for rivalry.”―Mike Mochizuki, Director with the Sigur Center for Asian Studies, Elliott School of International Affairs, George Washington University

“Analyses of regionalism in East Asia frequently oscillate between gleefully negative realist analyses in the primacy of nationalism and breathlessly naïve constructivist assertions from the inevitability of regionalism. By contrast, Remapping East Asia can be a thoughtful collection that eschews initial theoretical positions for measured, empirically rich, and theoretically nuanced reflections around the complex as well as times contradictory nature from the contemporary regional project in East Asia. T. J. Pempel with the exceptional colleagues should be commended.”―Richard Higgott, University of Warwick, Editor, The Pacific Review Read the rest of this entry »

This book brings value, specially without having the fifth edition or you cannot able to get your fifth edition.

This book has around ~50 new questions (a number of them were removed and brand new ones added). Fifth edition had 150 which one has 189.

The fifth edition ends at page 169 (along with the rest of the book being strategies to the questions) [TOTAL = 500pages] and this also new book ends at page 190 along with the rest of the pages, an overall total of ~700) with solutions and many pages of hints.

The fifth edition book is smaller in proportions while this is much larger.

The new edition is bulkier, with substandard quality paper compared to your fifth, and I still unsure how I would justify the size on the fact that a whole new edition was needed. Read the rest of this entry »

As a project management instructor and course developer for a state university, a project management keynote speaker, and somebody who has been training project managers for pretty much two decades, I suggest this book. I have also helped hundreds to secure their PMP exams (including training PMI employees) and however some folks claim they passed without it, I firmly think that the PMBOK is often a must-have.

I have owned every edition in the PMBOK and I can advise you that it’s gotten better as they age. Let’s face it, the pad isn’t the most enjoyable but a minimum of it’s far more readable than ever before. Processes will be more refined (some may remember core vs. facilitating processes in older versions) and they are titled more consistently (once had some commence with verbs while others with nouns), descriptions of inputs/tools & techniques/outputs are clearer, and illustrations are less confusing.
