Political Change in Southeast Asia: Trimming the Banyan Tree

by

Political Change in Southeast Asia: Trimming the Banyan Tree Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

South-East Asia was one of the poorest regions in the world; it is now one of the most desirable areas for foreign investment. "Political Change in Southeast Asia" takes up the debate between those who resist the pressure for democracy and point to unchanging "Asian" values, and those who believe that the appeal of democracy is universal. The author examines the case for both sides and concludes that the strong state will be a fixture of South-East Asian politics for some considerable time to come. Increasingly close links between the ten states of South-East Asia are likely to reinforce the perceptions of a common culture and in the end put up more effective defenses against external cultural influence.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [212]-225) and index.
