About the Author

Peter J. Rimmer Emeritus Professor, School of Culture, History and Language, ANU College of Asia and the Pacific, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia


'This book's strengths lie in its comprehensive grasp and synthetic approach to the material, together with the many maps and diagrams explaining the conceptual ideas and spatial patterns of the region's transportation networks between countries, as well as national development corridors, either actual or proposed. It will be very valuable for not only business studies scholars but also for geographers and spatial planners interested in the Asian-Pacific region.?' -- Pacific Affairs?
'Asian-Pacific Rim Logistics presents a wide span of material, geographically and conceptually, in considerable depth. Current conditions are presented with an historical context and up-to-date detail that will satisfy the specialist reader as well as those new to logistics and to Asian conditions. The coverage of logistics and policies within and between Japan, South Korea and China is particularly strong. The examination of developments in global logistics and of conditions in the extended Rim to include Australia and India, provides an interesting base from which to speculate about future directions in logistics.' -- Trevor Heaver, University of British Columbia, Canada
'This book is a tour de force on the dynamic complexities surrounding logistics operations in the Asian-Pacific Rim. Writing in a highly accessible fashion, Professor Rimmer systematically probes those dynamics that mould the complex protocols through the lens of structure and institutions. This is a not-to-miss book for anyone who wants to understand how global flows of goods, finance, information and people are relentlessly reshaped by local policies and logistics practices in countries of the Asian-Pacific region.' -- Booi H Kam, RMIT University, Australia
'There is no doubt that this book represents an original, important, and signi?cant contribution to a better understanding of the drivers of change and the spatial outcomes of a changing logistics environment in Asia and the Paci?c. It is a stand-out reference and handbook for researchers and decision-makers at many levels. It is at once both encyclopaedic and expansive in its perspective; and mind numbing in its excep-tional attention to detail-supported by a widely and deeply trawled literature base.' -- Asian-Pacific Economic Literature
