About this product
- DescriptionOver the course of the last half century, the growth ecomies of Southeast Asia - Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam - have transformed themselves into middle income countries. This book looks at how the very success of these ecomies has bred new challenges, vel problems, and fresh tensions, including the fact that particular individuals, sectors and regions have been marginalised by these processes. Contributing to discussions of policy implications, the book melds endogeus and exogeus approaches to thinking about development paths, re-frames Asia's model(s) of growth and draws out the social, environmental, political and ecomic side-effects that have arisen from growth. An interesting analysis of the problems that come alongside development's achievements, this book is an important contribution to Southeast Asian Studies, Development Studies and Environmental Studies.
