Example text

Extreme fragmentation, such as in the former Yugoslavia, has been accompanied by massive violence and dislocation. Meanwhile other countries, such as those of the former Soviet Union and Eastern and Central Europe, have become defined under transnational liberalism as “emerging markets” in which particularly raw and unruly forms of capitalist enterprise (leading many in the region to refer to it as the “Wild East”) are taking hold (6 Tuathail 1997). Even the People’s Republic of China has, on its southern margins (including Hong Kong, Macau, and the Special Economic Zones of Guangdong Province), a region of hyper-capitalism which is largely responsible for giving China an average annual growth rate in GNP per capita that is tied with South Korea’s as the world’s highest for 1985–94 (World Bank 1996:188).
