Southeast Asia in the New International Era (6TH 13 Edition)


Southeast Asia in the New International Era (6TH 13 Edition) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Southeast Asia in the New International Era highlights the dramatic political events sweeping a dynamic region populated by more than 500 million people. Where economic boom and crisis dominated events in the late twentieth century, economic recovery and policy dilemmas define much of the region today. Political cleavage continues to bedevil Thailands intermittent democratization. Vietnams single-party rule fosters ever tighter political control as it reacts to lagging economic growth. Surprising many, Burmas once closed polity now shows signs of genuine reform and openness. Elsewhere, patronage politics continues to inhibit development in the Philippines even as it fuels unprecedented growth in Cambodia and Laos. Home to the worlds largest Muslim population, Indonesia blazes new ground with young democratic institutions while simmering aspirations for greater democracy in neighboring Malaysia generate mass protest. Representing the greatest contrast in the region is the rich and stable, corporatist state of Singapore versus the economically poor and politically fragile democracy of Timor-Leste. Amidst domestic developments, ASEANs global profile continues to rise as the regions governments address a growing array of transnational concerns. This newly revised edition examines these developments and many others affecting the region and international political economy.


An essential introduction to contemporary Southeast Asia in the context of a post-Cold War world
