Melting the Iceberg analyses the oppurtunities and obstacles in the Korean Reconciliation and Reunification process while exloring effective ways of mobilising international support. The biggest challenge is to achieve the substantive democratisation of the peace process and consolidate new alternative aproaches to peace and security, breaking with the Cold War mould of "security deopendency" and embracing a future based on the "globalisation of solidarity".

A Siamese Tragedy argues that, even before the economic collapse of 1997-1998, the Thai economy had feet of clay. Walden Bello and his co-authors show how vested interests, local and international, propelled the Thai people down a particular path which is unsustainable in terms of human exploitation, social disruption, and economic fragility. Thailand, like the rest of the worls needs to re-think the fundamentals of its economic model.

This volume is a product of a collaborative research project organised by four Asian regional Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs). The idea for this undertaking came in the aftermath of the November 1994 meeting of the APEC in Bogor, Indonesia. a planned parallel NGO forum in Jakarta was marginalised by the Suharto government, while the media glossed over the social and environmental implications of what would be the world's largest free trade area.
