The international order of Asia in the 1930s and 1950s by Nicholas J White( )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reconsiders the nature and formation of Asia's economic order during the 1930s and 1950s in light of the new historiographical developments in Britain and Japan. Recently several Japanese economic historians have offered a new perspective on Asian history, arguing that the economic growth was fuelled by the phenomenon of intra-Asian trade which began to grow rapidly around the turn of the 19th-20th centuries. On the other side, several British imperial historians, have presented their own provocative interpretation of 'Gentlemanly capitalism and British expansion overseas', in which
Gentlemanly capitalism, imperialism, and global history by Shigeru Akita( Book )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British imperial history can now be seen as a bridge to global history. This study tries to renew the debate on British imperialism by combining Western and Asian historiography and constructing a new global history as an aid to the understanding of globalization in the late twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Part One takes a predominantly metropolitan view of the globalizing forces unleashed by British imperialism; Part Two focuses on the international order of East Asia and its connection with gentlemanly capitalism
The transformation of the international order of Asia : decolonization, the Cold War, and the Colombo Plan( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Asia the 1950s were dominated by political decolonization and the emergence of the Cold War System, and newly independent countries were able to utilize the transformed balance of power for their own economic development through economic and strategic aid programmes. This book examines the interconnections between the transfer of power and state governance in Asia, the emergence of the Cold War, and the transfer of hegemony from the UK to the US, by focusing specifically on the historical roles of international economic aid and the autonomous response from Asian nation states in the immediate post-war context. The Transformation of the International Order of Asia offers closely interwoven perspectives on international economic and political relations from the 1950s to the 1960s, with specific focus on the Colombo Plan and related aid policies of the time. It shows how the plan served different purposes: Britain's aim to reduce India's wartime sterling balances in London; the quest for India's economic independence under Jawaharlal Nehru; Japan's regional economic assertion and its endeavour to improve its international status; Britain's publicity policy during the reorganization of British aid policies at a time of economic crisis; and more broadly, the West's desire to counter Soviet influence in Asia. In doing so, the chapters explore how international economic aid relations became reorganized in relation to the independent development of states in Asia during the period, and crucially, the role this transformation played in the emergence of a new international order in Asia"--
