Chapter Summary

When significant changes take place in one part of the world, it is to be expected that effects will be felt elsewhere. Particularly in an era of increasing globalization, as regions and countries become inextricably linked to each other, what takes place in one region will be felt in another. This is clearly the case with the Greater Middle East (GME). This chapter provides a brief case study of a region that is, on the surface, tangentially related to the GME. It demonstrates what nations do when their focus in international economics and politics is altered because of what is happening elsewhere. Taking a broader look at Russia’s Far East, one is reminded that it is imbedded in a more complex Northeast Asian region—with Japan, China, Mongolia, and the Koreas as immediate neighbors, and the United States (US) never far away.

Keywords: China; globalization; Greater Middle East (GME); Japan; Korea; Mongolia; Northeast Asian; Russia’s Far East; United States (US)
