Assesses the impact of Asian transnational organized crime on the U.S. while, at the same time, determining high-priority areas for further research and identifying potential research partners and sources of relevant data and info. in Asia. The aim was thus not to examine the organized crime situation in the region in detail, but rather to lay the foundation for a research agenda that would ultimately accomplish this purpose.

European cinema between World Wars I and II was renowned for its remarkable attention to detail and visual effects in set design. Visionary designers such as Vincent Korda and Alfred Junge extended their influence across national film industries in Paris, London, and Berlin, transforming the studio system into one of permeable artistic communities. For the first time, Film Architecture and the Transnational Imagination provides a comparative study of European film set design in the late 1920s and 1930s.  Based on a wealth of drawings, film stills, and archival documents from the period, this

Relationships between social policy and human development are the subject of much research and theorizing. The literature in this area, however, examines these issues strictly within national contexts. What influence will international agendas such as NAFTA, the World Summit for Social Development, and Habitat II have? Transnational Social Policies specifically addresses the worldwide trend for national policies on human and social development to be increasingly influenced by agendas that are international, or "transnational," in nature. In doing so, the book examines the underlying internatio

It looks at Turks seeking to improve their position in Dutch society, Kurds lobbying for equal rights in Turkey and Surinamese hoping to boost development in th

The glittering economic success of the New Asia has a dark side of drug trafficking, illegal migration, labor abuses, and pollution. These so-called "transnational problems" are grabbing headlines and forcing themselves onto the diplomatic agenda with increasing frequency, shouldering aside traditional questions of commerce and security. Neither government authorities nor regional institutions are prepared to cope with this new agenda.What elevates social ills to Asian transnational problems? What stakes does the United States have in solving them? What are the policy options, and the obstacle
