Review in Journal of Asia Pacific Economy & Journal of Contemporary Asia

The Journal of Asia Pacific Economy has published a review (by Oliver Turner) of my edited volume "Globalization and Transnational Capitalism in Asia and Oceania" (Routledge, 2015). You can read the entire review here.

Also, a very long critical review of the same volume (and the "global capitalism school" approach, in general) has been published by Sean Kenji Starrs in the Journal of Contemporary Asia. Clearly we are going to be debating and researching these emergent dynamics for years to come. This review can be read here.
