The changing patterns of production and trade in fibres, textiles and clothing provide a classic case study of the dynamics of our interdependent world economy. For centuries Asia supplied the textile factories of Europe with natural fibres, including silk from East Asia exports virtually no natural fibres and instead is the world's most important exporter of manufactured textile products and chief importer of fibres. New Silk Roads, first published in 1992, demonstrates that despite the import barriers erected by advanced economies, textiles and clothing production continues to serve as an engine of growth for developing economies seeking to export their way out of poverty. This book is based on selected papers given at a conference which discussed East Asia's role in world fibre, textile and clothing markets. It draws on trade and development theory as well as on historical evidence to trace the development of these changing markets, which are now dominated by the newly industrialized economies of Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong and, increasingly, China and Thailand.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This presentation of economic interaction among Pacific nations within a single sector is a worthwhile contribution to regionalist analysis. An abundance of data, a bibiography, and a succinct introduction and conclusion by Kym Anderson make it a useful reference and teaching tool." Mark Borthwick, Journal of Asian Studies
"An extensive appendix and bibliography covering world trade in textiles adds to the usefulness of the book for specialists. However, the main interest to the general reader will be its implications as to the changing nature of world economic development. The New Silk Road is much broader than the Old Silk Road." Donald J. Senese, Journal of Social, Political, and Economic Studies
