La réussite de la Chine est aussi fulgurante qu'inédite. Au rythme actuel, elle pourrait même devenir la première puissance économique mondiale dès 2022. Pourtant, les stigmates d'une croissance à marche forcée s'accumulent : des villes fantômes, des faillites en cascade, des révoltes de plus en plus fréquentes, des dérives issues de la politique de l'enfant unique, des scandales alimentaires à répétition, des aéroports paralysés par la pollution...

Why is the French International Relations (IR) discipline different from the transnational-American discipline? By analysing argument structures in research articles across time, this book shows how the discipline in France is caught between the American character of the discipline and the French state as regulator of legitimate forms of expression. Concretely, French research arguments are less explicit about what their propositions are and what academic discussions they draw on and add to than their transnational-American counterparts. Based on a comparative case study of French...

Asia was probably the biggest economic sensation of the post-war decades. The breathtaking success of Japan was followed by a remarkable rise of "four tigers", then ASEAN founder states and then China. The Asian miracle became a commonly accepted definition of this success. In the late 1970s and especially 80s it became clear that the balance of power in the world had changed. Politicians, businessmen, scholars began to talk about "the new Asia Pacific age" and Asian economic model, different from and, maybe, even superior to Western capitalism. However, in 1997-98 the Asian economic...
