The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) grouping is the first comprehensive economic arrangement to link countries from around the Pacific Rim. Since its establishment in 1989, APEC has graduated from a ministerial-level gathering of nine countries to an institution that stages annual summits, has a permanent secretariat, and whose twenty-one members have committed themselves to establishing free trade in the region. A decade after its foundation, however, members have been increasingly frustrated with the grouping's progress. In this timely book, John Ravenhill examines the reasons for APEC's establishment, its evolution, and the causes of its failures. His conclusions address central questions in international relations about international collaboration and regionalism. The book will interest all those concerned with broader questions about regional economic and political cooperation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'It is probable that APEC and the Construction of Pacific Rim Regionalism will come to be regarded as the standard work on APEC's first decade.' Australian Economic History Review
'Ravenhill's account of APEC's development is balanced, thoughtful and timely ... If a serious attempt were to be made to grapple with how to reinvigorate APEC, John Ravenhill would certainly deserve to have a seat at the table.' Asian-Pacific Economic Literature
"Ravenhill provides an axcellent account of the construction and evolution of the Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC).... Highly recommended for those interested in the past and future of APEC. Graduate, research, and professional collections." Choice
"...Ravenhill's superb case study of regionalism in the Pacific Rim will quickly become the standard text on APEC at the turn of the millenium." Business History Review
