DESCRIPTION

Indonesia and the ASEAN Free Trade Agreement analyzes the relationship between Indonesian nationalism and regional integration, with specific reference to the ASEAN Free Trade Agreement (AFTA). Alexander C. Chandrachallenges prevailing arguments that nationalism and regionalism cannot coexist, and argues that the two ideologies can stand in a symbiotic relationship to each other. Chandra provides an in-depth discussion of the 1992 AFTA trade agreement, including an analysis of the attitudes of Indonesians toward the trade agreement, a political history of the formation of the agreement, and a review of the effects of the wave of democratization in 1997. Indonesia and the ASEAN Free Trade Agreement will be of interest to upper-level students and researchers of Asian studies and economics.
