The Asia-Pacific Profile offers a unique combination of maps, diagrams, documents, and statistical data covering every state around and within the Pacific: North-East and South-East Asia, the western rim of Central and South America, the Pacific island states, the Russian Far East, North America, and Australia. Key features include over 25 historical and contemporary maps featuring flows of labour, trade, investment, tourists and telecommunications, and empires, wars, colonial struggles and environmental degradation; succinct surveys of historical developments and contemporary political issues; over 500 diagrams depicting key demographic, economic and social changes since 1970 with appendices showing the actual data used and their sources; and key documents that have shaped the Asia-Pacific including founding charters of contemporary organizations such as APEC, ASEAN, NAFTA and the WTO, treaties and declarations that started and later resolved conflicts within and between states over politico-economic issues, and essential social rights documents concerning indigenous peoples. The Asia-Pacific Profile has been designed for those studying or with a general interest in the politics, economics and international relations of the Asia-Pacific region.
